About the Hinrich Foundation
The Hinrich Foundation (http://www.hinrichfoundation.com) believes sustainable global trade promotes economic prosperity and peace. It aims to encourage the private sector and governments to drive innovation and competitiveness in trade-related activities undertaken by individuals, companies, industries and countries by focusing on three programmatic areas:
Trade related education & training: We sponsor educational opportunities for individuals who show a commitment to participating in or promoting innovative and competitive global trade. We offer Hinrich Global Trade Leaders Scholarships (http://hinrichfoundation.com/trade-related-education) to students from Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, India, China and the USA to study in Hong Kong, Thailand, the Philippines, Israel and the US. We give our scholars internships and career development opportunities in export related companies and organizations in ten countries.
Export led job creation: The Foundation offers practical trade services to promote and coach producers on how to participate in global trade. Through the Developing Country Export Assistance Program (http://hinrichfoundation.com/job-creation), the Hinrich Foundation connects exporters in developing Asia with buyers worldwide.
International trade policy research: the Hinrich Foundation believes that the health of the global economy and peace between nations depend on countries having productive trade relationships, which require open, fact-based dialogues. We initiate research, elicit opinions and disseminate information about global trade to encourage objective debate and balanced policy making in support of open, free, transparent and fair global trade.
