Invest in Madrid received this week the students selected for the second edition of the new Foreign Trade Technicians Programme, jointly run by the Madrid Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services and the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Employment of the Madrid Regional Government.
A total of 20 young people have passed this tough training programme, and will be the beneficiaries of the one-year scholarship granted by the Community of Madrid to work as Foreign Trade Technicians in strategic countries for the commercial relations of the Community of Madrid. Some of these destinations are #Istanbul, #Washington, New York, #Lisbon, #Milan, #Bombay, Bogotá or Mexico City, among other cities.
The Foreign Trade Technicians Programme is an extremely important programme for companies in Madrid as it allows them to find, in their #internationalisation process, an essential ally in the country of destination that will help them to open up to new markets, identify opportunities and minimise risks in their establishment in a new country.
Invest In Madrid collaborated in the training programme for these trade technicians, with a talk on the importance of Foreign Direct Investment for the regional and national economy, as well as the role played by investment attraction agencies such as Invest In Madrid in attracting such investment and contributing to the creation of wellbeing and wealth.
At today’s event, we had the opportunity, together with the Ventanilla Unica de Internacionalizacion Madrid-VUI, to share with these talented young people the desire to experience the extraordinary opportunity they have been given. The event concluded with a tasting of Wines of Madrid, thanks to which they were able to learn about the Designation of Origin wines of our region.
