Automation Alley

Trade Mission for a US industry association, Automation Alley

In October 2013, Orissa International organised a trade mission to Singapore and Indonesia for an industry association, Automation Alley from Michigan, USA. Automation Alley is the largest technology business association in the state with nearly 1,000 businesses, educational institutions, government entities and non-profit organizations from the city of Detroit and the surrounding eight-county region as their members.

The participants of the trade mission were very pleased with the program that Orissa International arranged and indicated it to their Director of International Business Services.

"We received excellent feedback from our trade mission participants regarding the extremely productive meetings you arranged for them and the business opportunities that will soon emerge as a direct result of your hard work. We also appreciated your informative business briefings on doing business in Indonesia and Singapore. Thanks to you and your team this mission ranks among our organization's best. "
