Tremendous opportunities exist for Ontario businesses to develop and expand their export markets. In the face of these opportunities, challenges exist such as instability in selected global markets, a lack of expertise in market development, financial risks of currency fluctuation, and obtaining trade financing to fund business growth. The Ontario Export Awards creates a forum where the award finalists and other attendees will view your brand and representatives as valuable resources to help them respond to their business opportunities and meet these challenges.
