On the 21st of October, the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg will participate in the event EU Open for Business, which will take place on the 20th and 21st of October in Luxembourg.
This initiative, coordinated by the European Commission, aims to highlight European SMEs by promoting the business spirit and helping to create an environment more supportive for small and medium enterprises.
This edition will focus on the economic recovery post-coronavirus and how SMEs in Luxembourg can access to finance, find new business partners, and adapt for the future.
This 2-day digital event will present the various EU programmes available to SMEs in Luxembourg and offer unique access to representatives from the European Commission, national experts, and business intermediaries:
Within the frame of the event, Soraya Bravo, Project Manager at the Chamber, will present the European program Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs, for which the Chamber acts as local contact point in Belgium and Luxembourg. This program’s objective is to boost the professional exchange between entrepreneurs in Europe. The program can offer a great added value for both, new entrepreneurs and host entrepreneurs, like the exchange of knowledge and experience or the opportunity to establish contacts network in Europe and new trade relations, as well as access to foreign markets.
Additionally, Soraya Bravo will present the new MobiliseSME initiative, a European program that seeks to strengthen SMEs skills and capacities development by supporting short-term cross-border secondments for managers, owners, and staff of SMEs.
The secondments are partially subsidized by the European Union. Whether you are a company interested in improving your staff skills or a company interested in hosting a potential partner from another EU country, the program can offer a great added value to your business, among other things, to enhance your competitiveness and to boost your internationalization.
