enhancing global commerce
through export trade assistance

Supplier testimonials

The companies that we support through the Export Assistance Program offer unique and innovative designs, many of which are made from domestically sourced, indigenous and eco-friendly materials. Their livelihoods and that of their workers depend on offering the right product at the right price to the right buyer. It is our honor to assist small and medium-sized exporters across the region in finding new overseas buyers and to help them bring new products to consumers worldwide – and create jobs in the process.

Here is what they have say about our support:

Cambodia
Cambodia suppliers demonstrate fine craftsmanship and creates a range of fashion accessories and home decor from eco-friendly and recycled materials while offering buyers low MOQ. Suppliers in these industries – often NGOs – tend to employ disadvantaged workers to support their production processes while providing a much needed civic benefit. The Hinrich Foundation offers Cambodia suppliers FREE export marketing to help them expand their export reach.
