Be Joyful and Gear Up to Go Global in 2018

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.  By signing up, you can stay in the know on all things related to expanding your business globally.  It’s the eve of a new year:  be joyful and gear up to go global.

Meanwhile, the public-private consultation on the development of ‘Women National Business Agenda’ was organised by the Centre for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) and USAID Pakistan Regional Economic Integration Activity (PREIA) in collaboration with the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI).  The goal of this women-specific agenda is to give women a voice – ‘a first step towards their participation in the economic policy advocacy process’. Here’s one suggestion.

Recommendations to the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) included allocation of 25 per cent budget/quota for women exporters to ensure their participation in TDAP-sponsored trade delegations/exhibitions, establishing of platforms for knowledge sharing, and increasing formal exports by women entrepreneurs in online business.

Innovators Are More Likely to Achieve Export Success

InnovatorsMoreLikelyToAchieveExportSuccess

We are thrilled to report that our first webinar in a monthly series this year, “Getting Started in Exporting:  Ready Your Business For Growth” and presented by Laurel Delaney, was a huge success!  We had far more registrations than expected so thank you to all of you who signed up and a big shout out to WEGG Board member Laura Fairman for her help in launching the webinar technology.

In case you missed the webinar, the recording link will be made available next week so you can enjoy the presentation at your convenience.  Watch for it.  Be sure to mark your calendar for the next webinar held on Wednesday, February 3, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. Central time and presented by Kati Suominen, founder and CEO of Tradeup Capital Fund.  She’ll discuss the best way to finance an international trade deal.

Switching gears a bit.  Ever wonder if there is evidence on the relationships between innovation, exporting and growth of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)?  According to “Building the Evidence Base for SME Growth Policy,” there is.

SMEs which have a track record of innovation are more likely to export, more likely to export successfully and more likely to generate growth from exporting than non-innovating firms.

Innovation plays an important positive role in export growth.  To get to innovation, you must develop capable management.
