Our Mission

Our mission focuses on opening international markets as a tool for economic growth, promoting more jobs and better working conditions for citizens of emerging economies.

Contributing to the translation of international trade norms into domestic laws.

Facilitating access to the US and EU markets for small and medium-sized companies from emerging economies, and helping them achieve economic, social, and environmental sustainability in their production cycles.

Reconciling the extraction of natural resources with the preservation of the environment and improving the quality of life of communities living in the areas where the extraction is taking place, as well as preserving their values and cultural heritage.
