A demonstration of how the AVANA system integrates with Facebook for the business owner to take advantage of niche marketing. Meanwhile, MATRADE provides an open opportunity for the business owner to take grant if they are successfully selected by them. The training session gives a general idea of how exporting abroad works from Malaysia to other countries. There are at least hundreds of participants turn up to join this training session. I met some familiar faces from eUsahawan Certified Trainers in the Northern Region as well as our past eUsahawan class students who attended this session.
