MTI in Perth to enable Western Australia-South Asia Trade

Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Wednesday, 10 October 2018 00:00


MTI Consulting, as part of its International Market Entry Services, is in Perth this week to explore opportunities to facilitate trade between the lucrative Western Australian state and the South Asian regions (represented by SAARC) with a population in excess of 1.5 billion consumers. 

Post the mining boom, Western Australian companies, particularly those in energy, natural resources, education, tourism are seeking opportunities for market entry collaboration in the one of the world’s fastest growing regions i.e. South Asia, with India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka as the main markets. 

Commenting on the sidelines of the Road Show in Perth, MTI’s CEO Hilmy Cader said: “In an increasingly borderless world more and more companies are contemplating on expanding overseas. Unlike operating in the domestic market, internationalization of has its challenges and complexities. Identification of the true market potential, navigating through numerous legal, financial and operational differences, HR challenges, cultural differences etc. are some of the challenges faced by companies when internationalizing operations.” 

From 1999 to 2017, MTI had enabled Perth-based IIBT to market their educational services in the South Asian and Middle East Region. More recently, MTI was appointed by The University of Western Australia (ranked in the World’s Top 100 Universities) to explore opportunities in Sri Lanka. 

MTI Consulting is an internationally-networked boutique management consultancy, offering advisory services range from strategic planning, corporate re-structuring, process re-engineering, performance management, international market entry, feasibility studies, due diligence, corporate finance, M&A, HR, executive search/head hunting, marketing strategy, branding to market research. Since its inception in 1997, MTI has worked on over 640 assignments in 43 countries, covering a diverse range of industries, clients and business challenges.
