"The program which I attended in recent days is one of the best. In my belief, it really helps to curb the gap between Australia and other nations. Also, hope it will eliminate the stereotypes about other nations in international trade, making Victoria truly global. Once again thank you for making us a part of such a good initiative and nice work, keep it up."
"One of the students you allocated to us is a shining star. He has already sent through a country analysis for India to help us understand the cultural differences and a questionnaire for us to complete to understand our company's vision and 5 year plan. Looking forward to the next event. "
