With help from the NJ STEP Grant awarded by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), BRISEA’s President, Dr. Mark Moese, traveled to New Delhi and Mumbai from May 6th to 10th to attend the 2019 U.S. Department of Commerce Trade Winds Forum. Dr. Moese participated in business matchmaking by meeting with representatives of 34 companies to potentially expand BRISEA’s international network to not only include the Indian market, but also the ASEAN markets. BRISEA was able to learn how to increase profits and overcome barriers in the Indo-Pacific regions through business development conferences and networking with the region’s leading industry and government officials and experienced U.S. and global companies.
Besides attending B2B meetings, the forum also hosted regional and industry specific conference sessions, as well as pre-arranged consultations with U.S. Diplomats representing commercial markets throughout the Indo-Pacific region.
BRISEA hopes to explore new business opportunities and expand its international network.
