Through collaboration with government agencies, diplomatic entities, and international organisations, GBC acts as a catalyst for global trade, fostering economic development and prosperity for businesses in the global marketplace.
Accessing new export markets through networking
Export promotion has several economic benefits for a country, such as increased foreign exchange earnings, job creation, economic growth, and improved trade balance. At GBC we are committed to enhancing the exports of Made in Gujranwala Products. Made in Gujranwala (MIG) Enclosure has been set up with the primary purpose of showcasing Gujranwala’s industrial products to the international audience. Tie-ups with international trade organisations and business councils are regularly sought to enhance the reach of MIG Products to world markets. Through targeted export promotion initiatives, the GBC organises trade missions, participates in international trade shows, and facilitates business matchmaking events to connect exporters with potential buyers, distributors, and partners in foreign markets. These initiatives not only help businesses expand their customer base but also foster economic growth by promoting the export of goods and services, generating employment opportunities, and boosting overall competitiveness.
Strengthening Industry-Academia Linkages
A source of knowledge creation, innovation and economic growth
Over the years, industry-academia collaboration has enhanced knowledge & innovation and played an integral part in the economic growth of developed countries. The linkage of academia and industry has a strategic role in developing critical skills required by industry, generation, acquisition, and adoption of knowledge, and in promoting entrepreneurship (start-ups and spin-offs). Similarly, the expansion of market-driven research and innovation at the university level can be utilised at the industrial level to foster commercialisation. The interaction between academia and industry is the key to economic growth in developing countries as well. GBC aims to eliminate the gap and mismatch between the skills and knowledge required in industry and the graduates produced by universities for mutually beneficial outcomes.
