Trade Missions

One of the attributes of a strong Global Business Council is to be involved in organizing either an inbound or outbound trade mission. Trade Missions are international trips organized for the purpose of exploring international business opportunities, learning about a foreign market, and building relationships.

The Trade Missions listed on this page are being hosted by Local and State Global Business Councils, for the purpose of fostering international real estate connections.
