On 15 June 2021, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was re-signed between the EU SME Centre and Sicindustria. Following our previous successful cooperation on assisting Italian SMEs to develop their presence in China, the renewal of this MoU is thus to further strengthen future cooperation on China-related business activities in China, Europe and COSME participating countries. The aim is to add value to each other’s activities by creating or increasing synergies contributing to the common goal of supporting SMEs interested in doing business in China.
The EU SME Centre is looking forward to continuing to cooperate with Sicindustria on supporting Italian SMEs in China. In this context, an online training workshop focused on the building construction sector in China was jointly organised in May and another virtual session is planned to take place at the end of September. Remember to stay updated on our website, newsletter, and social media to learn more about our upcoming activities.
