JTC Mission to Southeast Asia 2019: Malaysia and Singapore
This summer, thirty Junior Team Canada Ambassadors representing each region of the country, will be hitting the ground in Singapore and Malaysia from July 25 to August 9, 2019*, to promote Canadian industry and culture in one of the world's largest economic regions. As a Pacific nation, Canada has strong relations with our ASEAN trade partners Singapore and Malaysia.
Global Vision is pleased to launch our Southeast Asia Mission, applications are now being received online and will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis until the June 1 deadline at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time. Dialogues by previous Junior Team Canada Ambassadors with their Malaysian and Singaporean counterparts over the since 1997 will be used as foundation to build upon strong, existing relationships. Ambassadors are chosen based on their ability to lead, work in a team, communication skills, and most importantly their commitment to their communities and country.
Each Junior Team Canada (JTC) Ambassador is responsible for partnering with businesses, governments, educational institutions and organizations in their communities to raise $6,000.00 in sponsorship and agree upon mandates to fulfill when abroad. Global Vision funds the remaining costs through national and regional partnerships.
Working with the Embassy of Canada, and key stakeholders, Global Vision coordinates opportunities for JTC to engage local industry, government, education and youth leaders in order to obtain market intelligence and key contacts for our Canadian partners.
During the Mission, JTC will focus on commercial opportunities for Canadian enterprises in economic sectors with particular growth potential in the Southeast Asian marketplace such as agriculture, bio-tech, clean-tech, education, engineering, information communications technology, manufacturing, mining, natural resources, and tourism.
Upon our return, JTC will produce market sector and tailored reports for our partners which will include a summary of the Mission, market intelligence gathered, opportunities identified and key contacts made.
