Irwin Grayson Associates
Asian Development Bank

David is team leader for a programme undertaken for the Asian Development Bank, known as PROFIT (Promoting Regional Opportunities for Investment & Trade), led by IMC Worldwide with core partners ASSIST and Bombay Chamber of Commerce & Industry. The objective is to support SMEs in India and in the countries of the Greater Mekong Subregion (that is, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam) to begin to trade regionally. In some cases, that may be as simple as export or import. However, it could also include firms forming joint ventures, perhaps to trade further afield, or licensing arrangements, or technology transfer. Partcipating businesses will be offered a combination of training and mentoring, supported whilst participating in a trade mission and, if necessary, introduced to sources of finance to support their new trading activities.
