The shortlists for the first set of International Trade Awards have been announced today (27 October).
Organised by the Institute of Export & International Trade (IOE&IT), sponsored by customs and borders experts Eori (UK), and judged by an independent group of judges from all sectors of the industry, the awards are a unique opportunity to celebrate the work and achievements of industry pioneers and leaders.
Commenting on the announcement of the shortlist, Marco Forgione, director general of IOE&IT, said:
“We were impressed by the standard of entries for this first set of International Trade Awards. Congratulations to all those who made it onto a shortlist and good luck to all of them.
