WTCA On-Line Seminar
In view to introduce the services of World Trade Centers Association's revamped website, WTCA On-Line, WTC Macau organised a seminar on June 25 for its members interested in finding out more about how these trade services offered by WTCA can assist them in expanding their international business contacts and opportunities.
The seminar conducted by Anabela Guerreiro Estorninho, Deputy Director of Marketing, was attended by a group of members who were taken through a live on-line demonstration of all the functions within the eight categories of services offered by the Internet-based WTCA On-Line, and how each trade service and source of information can be integrated into the daily operations or plan of a company, be it manufacturing, trading or service oriented.
For members who were unable to attend the Seminar, listed below are
some highlights of the services available through the website on http://www.wtca.org
WTCA On-Line Trade Opportunities Database, where high quality global trade offers are provided by WTC members around the world;
WTCA World Business Directory, where users can find contact information on more than 140,000 companies in 180 countries;
Dun & Bradstreet Exporter's Encyclopaedia, for companies expanding into new regions and seeking country profiles, etc.;
WTC Virtual Trade Fair, where buyers can search for new products and suppliers, and sellers can increase their company exposure and gain sales lead opportunities;
Since the April launch of WTCA On-Line, registration has grown rapidly.
The WTCA On-Line Trade Opportunities Database now includes over 600 qualified
offers. Traffic and use of the website has increased substantially as we
continue to add new products and information.
NEW YORK - WTCA representatives recently met with Mr Richard Frank,
General Manager of the World Bank and with other Bank officials in Washington,
D.C to brief them on the purposes and programmes of the WTCA and to explore
possible cooperative ventures. Officials of the Bank offered to disseminate
business opportunities of the Bank through WTCs and collaborate on other
joint initiatives. The Bank has made similar arrangements with chambers
of commerce. The World Bank also offered to enter into staff exchange
programmes with WTCs. Such exchanges are designed to train individuals
in the programmes of the Bank and to educate the Bank's staff about the
work of WTCs. Finally, the Bank has indicated a strong interest in
attending a meeting in Hong Kong to accelerate co-operation with WTCs.
All this is part of the Bank's effort to develop close working relationships
with the private sector.
