The FedEx Express / JA International Trade Challenge (ITC) is a competition organized by JA Asia Pacific, and sponsored by FedEx Express.  The ITC aims at nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit and business skills of students.  During the event, students work to create international market entry strategy plans for a given product and target market. 

 

Each year, more than 2,700 aspiring young entrepreneurs participate in local ITC workshops across 10 markets over a period of eight months to create market entry strategies for a variety of products and services for their respective ITC local challenges.

 

Since its debut in 2007, the ITC has developed over 25,500 young entrepreneurs in the Asia Pacific region. The first ITC regional finals was held in Hong Kong in 2007; since then, ITC regional finals have travelled to different markets in the region including Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia.

Planning for the 2020 FedEx/JA ITC is well underway, please visit this website for updates on event details.
