What could a Spanish company that produces organic beverage products, a German manufacturer of surgical instruments, and a Scottish firm which designs and builds environmentally-friendly wind turbines have in common?
All eager to export their products or advanced technologies to Asia, these European companies applied, and were selected to participate in an EU Gateway | Business Avenues mission.
This EU-funded initiative, designed to help European companies enter the growing markets of Korea, Japan, China, and South East Asia, is now looking back on two successful years of project implementation.
Participating companies have the opportunity to discover the latest trends in their industry, showcase their products and technologies during business exhibition days, and establish long-lasting business relationships with reputable Asian companies.
Opinions from participants are unanimous: joining in a business mission has helped them enter or strengthen an already existing presence in the market, acquire new contacts or increase cooperation with existing clients.
