FedEx Express announced the winners of the Singapore FedEx Express/JA International Trade Challenge (FedEx/JA ITC) 2017.

The three pairs of student business teams who advanced to the Asia Pacific FedEx/JA ITC in Singapore occurring from August 20 to 24, 2017 are:

1. Ryan Ling and Dogiparthy Reshma Ishwarya – Anderson Junior College

2. Darren Lim and Nabila Syuhada – ITE College Central

3. Ang Swee Yang and Tjhe Paramita Devi – Nanyang Polytechnic

The finalist teams presented their ideas to a judging panel composed of FedEx and Junior Achievement representatives, who evaluated them on their innovative ideas for a household product to be sold in India. The winning teams were assessed based on the originality of their concept, thoroughness of research for their business plans, and feasibility of their ideas. Outshining 12 other teams, the winning teams will now have the opportunity to compete in the prestigious regional finals.

This year’s regional finals will feature an exciting change from the previous competition format. To further promote cross-border collaboration, finalists will not be competing in the same team but will instead go through a random shuffle to form a mixed team of two team members from different countries.
