On 12 December 2022, the representatives of the EU SME Centre and Fundació Tecnocampus Mataró-Maresme signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), thus formally committing to working together and creating synergies. This new partnership agreement signed with a non-profit foundation based in Barcelona, Spain, will enhance the outreach capacity and value-added activities provided to European SMEs looking to do business in China.
The EU SME Centre is devoted to sharing its knowledge on China-related matters to build the capacity of companies interested in entering the Chinese market. In this context, the co-organised online event Get Ready to Enter the Market in China was organised on 14 December 2022. If you missed out on this event, you can stream the recording here.
The Centre is looking forward to the future cooperation with Aice and we welcome the opportunity to further support Italy SMEs’ interests and contribute to the common goal of supporting their growth.
Business support organisations and trade promotion organisations from Member States of the European Union and Single Market Programme-participating countries with member companies interested in the Chinese market are welcome to contact our Partnership Coordinator to obtain further information about partnerships and collaborations. The EU SME Centre offers a wide range of free services to partners and affiliated SMEs to improve their readiness to the market in China. Find out more about becoming a partner of the Centre here.
