Objectives
Below is the list of objectives to be achieved during the visit:
1. Evaluate the mill
2. Negotiate for partnership if possible.
Observations and Experiences
Unfortunately, the targeted mill was fake. The contacted person copied all genuine logos and
email domain of the real targeted mail but when we reached the designated place, we found it a
very small office then the person admitted that was fake location.
We will try to find out the real contact for further business approach.
