A memorandum of cooperation on the use of the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) platform was signed between the ‘Produce in Georgia’ Entrepreneurship Development Agency, Georgia’s Innovation and Technology Agency (GITA) and the Georgian Chamber of Commerce and Industry at Technology Park Tbilisi last week. The aim is to assist Georgian entrepreneurs to export their products, foster international partner relations, establish trading missions and participate in forums.
EEN, which operates in 67 countries, enables network members to exchange business proposals, with over 600 international companies involved.
“The platform will play an important role in terms of developing business in Georgia and providing necessary information to Georgian entrepreneurs,” said Mariana Morgoshia, ‘Produce in Georgia’ Director. “Being a part of EEN is crucial for Georgian entrepreneurs in terms of their product realization process as well as for market diversification”.
Within the signed memorandum framework, all three state agencies will be spreading information about the benefits offered by EEN, and assisting Georgian entrepreneurs with the EEN registration process.
“The work between European and Georgian enterprises has to be synchronized, and that’s the aim of the platform,” said Giorgi Zviadadze, Director of the Georgian Innovation and Technology Agency.
“We will be assisting companies both in the capital and in the regions to position themselves and their products in the largest enterprise network in Europe,” Nino Chikovani, President of Georgian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, added.
The Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia claims that any Georgian company is eligible to receive EEN services once they fill in the application at een-georgia.ge and apply to either Produce in Georgia, GITA or the Georgian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
