World Trade Centre reaching out internationally

  • Print

Six months after the formation of World Trade Centre Winnipeg, the new Winnipeg branch of the global trade organization has been used to extend feelers on behalf of Winnipeg companies to Brazil, the Netherlands, Turkey and the Philippines.

Mariette Mulaire, the CEO of World Trade Centre Winnipeg said it has led trade missions and hosted incoming missions from several countries.

Mulaire is speaking at an event in Winnipeg today detailing how Manitoba has made some world-class decisions that have primed it to engage with the world and grow international trade.

The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce and ANIM (Manitoba’s Bilingual Trade Agency) combined forces to successfully apply for a World Trade Centre (WTC) licence last year. It allows them to have direct and immediate contact with 330 WTC offices around the world.

Mulaire said it is hoped that a downtown Winnipeg location that is fitting to house the WTC and host international delegations and dignitaries will be announced early in the new year.
