    © International Trade Centre, International Trade Forum - Issue 4/2000

    "I just received issue 2/2000 of Forum, and decided to send you this e-mail right away. The central theme on harnessing the power of innovation is indeed very interesting. My office is grateful for the numerous materials which ITC has sent us."

    Finding importers
    "I was really delighted to read an article on "Looking for Importers" in Forum (Issue 1/2000). A huge amount of information is available regarding exporters and their products on the Internet, but very, very few resources are available on importers. Such articles provide a lot of guidance to entrepreneurs in search of business opportunities. We plan to translate the article into our regional language and reproduce the same in our newsletter. Expecting more of such articles in future issues."

    Ed. note: This article struck a chord with many readers. It was also reproduced in Trademart, the newsletter of the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation and the All India Stainless Steel Industries Association newsletter.

    Innovation, quality management
    "My organization assesses, creates and implements quality management systems (such as ISO 9000) and Total Quality Management programmes for medium-sized goods or service enterprises. Your article on innovation appeared to me to be of great relevance, and I have a professional interest in obtaining more information in this area.
    You asked readers about which themes interest us. Please report on the new (year 2000) version of ISO 9000, which will soon be appearing on the markets."
