Business mission calendar: confirmed dates in 2017

Eleven business missions will take place this year

EU Gateway | Business Avenues business exhibition

Over 500 selected European companies will participate to the 11 business missions scheduled in 2017 for the EU Gateway | Business Avenues programme. This EU-funded initiative builds on over 25 years of successful experience, helping European companies to establish long-lasting business collaborations in Asia.

This new round of unique business opportunities includes missions to five new markets (China, Japan [1], Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines), and five new sectors (Contemporary European Design [2], Information & Communication Technologies [3], Healthcare & Medical Technologies [4], Clean Technologies [4] and Railway Technologies &Services [5]).

Business missions are entry tickets to markets with challenging business culture or regulatory constraints. EU Gateway | Business Avenues helps sound out business opportunities in promising markets, minimises the costs typically required to enter a new market, supports companies when making new contacts and strengthening their company network, enables entrepreneurs to discuss challenges and opportunities with industry players and, finally, offers professional coaching and follow-up at all stages.

The calendar currently lists the following business missions:

EU Business Avenues in South East Asia

EU Gateway to Korea
