- Providing valuable skills and experience including, technical expertise, flexibility, the ability to adapt to changing circumstances, perseverance, determination, and a strong work ethic.
- Bringing international expertise, providing a competitive edge by using their knowledge and experience to serve diverse local and international markets.
- Having the ability to communicate effectively in more than one language, thus enhancing their business edge within changing local markets and growing international markets.
