In November 2005, Patsy Beattue-Huggan and Kate Hughes joined other entrepreneurs from around the Atlantic Provinces on the Women Exporter’s Initiative and Mission to Boston, USA. This Trade Team mission was organized by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) in partnership with the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME), with support from International Trade Canada (ITC) and the Export Development Corporation (EDC).
The goal for this mission (through mentoring, matchmaking/one-on-one business meetings and networking events and receptions) was to create an informal and internal support network of women owned companies individually and collectively working to succeed in export markets.
Patsy and Kate had a wonderful experience and this is one of the many photos taken. We are all excited about what this opportunity will offer The Quaich Inc. in the future and look forward to its many possibilities.
