How The Initiative Works

International Projects works with geographic officers and trade specialists at Manitoba Trade and Investment to identify opportunities for Manitoba companies in developing countries. International Projects will then work with Manitoba companies and organizations to research and develop proposals for securing contracts.

International Projects Goal

Assist Manitoba companies and organizations to secure contracts, financed by Canada-based international agencies and International Financial Institutions (IFIs), for consulting, civil works and procurement activities.

Initiative Strategy

MTI's strategy is two-fold. There is a 'reactive' component that identifies existing opportunities for Manitoba companies. MTI will advise and assist Manitoba companies to pursue those opportunities. Many of these opportunities can be found on the United Nations Development Business website.  This website is a fee-based subscription service.

The second component to the strategy involves a proactive approach to develop projects for Manitoba companies with our bilateral partners around the world. This will involve identifying our partners' needs and then developing the projects, with IFI funding, for Manitoba companies to fulfill those needs.

The IFIs loan approximately US$30 billion each year to developing countries for various types of projects.
