As we enter into a new year, WEGG will continue its focus offering top notch education programming via its popular monthly WEGGinars™ and on-the-ground workshops but we will also look into building an online platform that facilitates “access” to key movers and shakers in international trade and encourages more knowledge sharing peer-to-peer. Watch for more on this development as the year progresses. And if you are not signed up for our WEGG World Newsletter, here’s a sample of what you missed in our last issue.
