What is international trade?
International trade refers to commercial exchanges that exist between several countries. The law of each country concerned and the rules of international law govern this trade.
Free trade agreements are intended to reduce barriers to international trade between two or more countries, usually by setting lower tariffs. The World Trade Organisation (WTO) works to simplify international trade by creating global rules and standards for its member countries.

Testimonies of graduated in international trade
I work a lot with foreign suppliers, especially from the United States, Europe and Asia, so I mainly use English in this context.
Camille, Prototype Buyer at Volvo in Montréal, Canada
To be able to move into export, you had to have commercial experience in the field. During this period, I travelled around the country to meet the players in mass distribution. I was in a commercial negotiation role. This involves a lot of representations, product tastings and meetings with customers. You have to develop your local network in order to attract new customers and keep them loyal.
