International Development Consulting

CMS assists clients looking to expand into global markets, as well as those already working internationally.

For companies venturing into new territory, CMS undertakes comprehensive market research and feasibility assessment to support sound business decisions. We then work with our clients to develop business and export development plans and can provide ongoing coaching and support, as needed. CMS has assisted Canadian companies wanting to do business in China, the Philippines, Europe, Mexico and the United States in sectors including agriculture, manufacturing, energy, public infrastructure, and technology. CMS also provides expertise in proposal development and management for clients seeking external funding.

For organizations operating internationally, CMS provides training and technical assistance to local personnel, particularly those in developing countries and countries in economic transition. We develop and deliver training for government departments, universities, NGOs and private or government-operated companies in market-based business practices including strategic planning, business development, marketing and human resource management. CMS and its associates have experience in Asia, Africa and Central America and with international donors including CIDA, the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank.
