Preparations for the fourth delegation of the Go International business meeting programme are entering their final phase. The business meeting is being organised by Eurobank, in cooperation with the Greek International Business Association (SEVE), the Panhellenic Exporters Association (PEA), the Exporters Association of Crete (EAC) and the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The next event, which will be held in Moscow on 27 & 28 May, will be attended by the Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dimitris Avramopoulos.
The business delegation to Moscow represents a milestone for Go International, as it focuses on developing business networks in the Russian market, namely a market that combines global outreach with exceptional opportunities for Greek entrepreneurs.
The event is supported by the Hellenic-Russian Chamber of Commerce, while major Russian commercial and industrial organisations, such as the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Opora Russia (organisation for medium-sized enterprises with more than 300,000 members), Delovaya Russia (organisation representing large and very large Russian enterprises from all industries), will assist the Greek business delegation by enlisting their members.
Greek exporters have embraced the Go International programme from the very beginning, having participated in the previous three major events held successively in Nicosia, Belgrade (a first for 40 Russian entrepreneurs) and Bucharest.
A platform where Greek export-oriented entrepreneurs can meet with the international business community and potential clients, Go International has so far given the opportunity and provided the framework for more than 4,000 B2B meetings of 250 Greek exporting companies to promote Greek exports, including 20 high-tech research centres with 500 foreign importing and distribution companies from 16 countries. It is worth noting that many entrepreneurs have been repeatedly participating in the delegations, which indicates that their previous experience has been positive and they consider it a valuable international networking tool.
More than 150 Greek exporting companies are expected to participate in the business delegation to Moscow on 27 & 28 May 2013. The following sectors will be represented:
The meetings between Greek exporters and Russian importers will be set in advance and held in specially-designed areas at the Radisson Royal Hotel in Moscow. The programme will be as follows:
Day 1 Day 2
B2B meetings B2B meetings
In terms of extroversion, competitive applied research and innovation products that contribute to the overall exporting activity are particularly important to this venture. In this context, the high technology sector could not have been left out of the Moscow business delegation. Therefore, 17 Greek companies from this sector will participate, including InAccess Networks SA, Raycap, Intracom SA and Upstream SA.
