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.
