Canadian companies interested in free information about a prospective international market should tap into their respective Canadian Trade Commissioner. These Commissioners are responsible for just about every country in the world, with individual representatives for the most popular industry sectors in a given region.
Valuable Government Resources for International Markets
India and China are two of the most rapidly growing regions in the world. Companies from around the world are flocking to countries like these in order to assist with the economic development, however it can be difficult for smaller companies to conduct the proper market research needed to properly enter the market.
