The Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal’s team of international trade experts, the World Trade Centre Montréal, in collaboration with the World Bank Group’s Private Liaison Officers for Nova Scotia and the Quebec Private Sector, is organizing a trade mission to international financial institutions in Washington, which will take place from May 7 to 9, 2014.

You will meet experts from the following institutions:

  • The World Bank (WB)
  • Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)

On the very premises of the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank, experts will inform you about current and upcoming projects in emerging countries. You will be able to establish key contacts in these institutions, and better understand how your company can take advantage of many upcoming business opportunities.

The development banks consider education to be a strong vehicle for development and one of the best ways to reduce poverty. Over the course of the 2013 fiscal year, the World Bank committed $3 billion to education projects. The World Bank represents the largest source of external funding for the education sector in developing countries. At the end of the 2012 fiscal year, it was managing a $9 billion portfolio in some 73 countries.

Economic growth in developing countries, in addition to the need for qualified technical professionals on site, has led local governments and the development banks to implement numerous projects that are likely to be managed by organizations with great technical education expertise.

The technical approach used by many education centres in Canada is model to be followed in these countries.

This mission will also provide an exceptional opportunity for international networking, as it will bring a delegation to Washington to meet several international development project managers in the education and training sector.
