Are you a High School student interested in business? This registration form is for our Local Workshop held in the Sydney CBD

The JA/FedEx Express International Trade Challenge (ITC) is an opportunity to broaden students' understanding of the global trade, market entry strategy, and to take part in active scenarios that enhance their knowledge of product distribution, competition, pricing, promotion, and sales.

The ITC program is a competition based on market entry strategy whereby students are required to research and synthesise detailed information related to a specific country and product type in order to gain a greater understanding of international trade.

The ITC Workshop stresses to elements of teamwork, competition, marketing, promotion and innovation, and prepares students for a Local Competition phase that involves a written strategy touching on project planing, product development, and financial considerations.
