The 2nd Cuba-EU Expert Exchange programme holds two training sessions on importing and exporting products and services
Within the framework of the 2nd Cuba-EU Expert Exchange Programme, the Madrid Metal Companies Association (AECIM) has given two training sessions on the use of databases by SMEs and strategies for entering foreign markets. Both activities have been an important step in the development of a strategic plan for the country in terms of exports and imports in international markets.
The sessions were attended by personnel from Cuban institutions such as the Cuban Chamber of Commerce and associated companies exporting to priority areas for the development of the country’s economy in sectors such as culture, food production, information technology, health, education, transportation and services.
The activity is aligned with the work being carried out by the Cuban Chamber of Commerce to support exports by companies associated with the institution and the need to become familiar with processes and tools to internationalise their products and services, and to acquire useful information about the markets where they want to sell their products and services. Therefore, knowledge of the many available databases is of vital importance as a first step towards the internationalisation of Cuban companies.
The 2nd Cuba-EU Expert Exchange programme, which is funded by the European Union and managed by FIIAPP, is assisting Cuba to implement its socio-economic policy guidelines by mobilising experts from the EU, Cuba and third-party countries in matters relating to administration management and public policies.
