Hi, I'm Bhavna Shah, and this is a little glimpse into my journey as a veteran in trade and market development. I manage product promotion, sustainability, and industry policy environment in India. I specialize in international trade relations. Currently, on the career front, I am Heading the Malaysian Palm Oil Council for India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. I am also the Past-President Maharashtra Chapter and Co-Chair National Board of Advisors, MSME & Startups Forum for Atmanirbhar Bharat.
