By EU SME Centre | Press Article      04.05.2021     Tags:

The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the largest disruptions in public health and economy that most of us have ever faced. Businesses around the world have felt its effects, and it is undeniably that SMEs have experienced an even more severe impact due to higher levels of vulnerability and lower resilience related to their size. 

In this context, the EU SME Centre, EUROCHAMBRES and our official partner, Voka – Chamber of Commerce & Industry Mechelen-Kempen are organizing an online business conference which will take place on 14 October 2021, where five EU SMEs will be explaining how they managed to successfully export into China in these difficult times. You can read more about the event here
