In Mexico I was able to connect two of my contacts. They are now working with each other, and I am building a relationship with both of them. That made me more valuable to them because I was a connecting link.

WTC-KY Trade Missions have helped us specifically in educating ourselves about foreign markets and cultivating working relationships with foreign business partners and also more generally in reminding us that we work in a truly global economy and that greater success lies in an ability to participate fully in that economy.
