She exhorted trainees to learn all they could during the Workshop and use what they learn and their onsite visit experiences to start a business or expand business opportunities when they return home. She also encouraged trainees to make effective use of the Overseas Credit Guarantee Fund to develop their business. She invited trainees to use the Overseas Compatriot Card to make purchases and enjoy discounts at any of the 4100 engaged businesses worldwide.
