Annual competition rewards student-run companies that best apply principles of global connectivity
FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp and the international express company, in conjunction with tGELF/JA, announced the three winning teams in the second national competition FedEx/JA International Trade Challenge India. The annual competition recognizes student-run businesses that best display the principles of global connectivity, with selected teams competing at the APAC (Asia-Pacific) level.
Over a period of five months, the staged competition featured a series of virtual workshops attracting over 450 students from 33 schools across India. The workshops included interactive learning sessions, inspiring discussions and mentorship from FedEx, tGELF/JA India and industry experts on key concepts in developing market entry strategies and global trade .
The three student teams identified to represent India in the Asia Pacific FedEx/JA International Trade Challenge competition later this year are Shiv Nadar School, Gurgaon, The Shri Ram School Aravali, Gurgaon, and Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan Sr Secondary School, Chennai. To foster cross-cultural collaboration during the APAC competition, Indian students will be grouped into new teams made up of participants from more than 10 Asia-Pacific member countries. This shift in team structure provides students with a dynamic platform to share experiences with participants from other locations, gain global perspectives, and encourage collaborative thinking.
