DescriptionTo international entrepreneurs, Europe is potentially one of the most profitable markets in the world. At the same time it also a very complex, competitive and dynamic market. Its structures are changing constantly and buyer motives today are different than they were five years ago. Exporters are constantly facing new regulations and market standards, especially with regard to safety, quality, packaging and the environment. Exporters eager to access the EU market must prepare themselves carefully and thoroughly. But the time is ripe for exporters. Rising production costs are forcing many European companies to purchase outside the EU and imports have shown major growth in recent years. This means there are good opportunities for aspiring exporters. The only question is: how do you turn them into profitable business? To help you export to the European market or to improve your export position, the CBI has developed a very practical Export Coaching Programme for Home Decoration/Home Textiles. The programme follows a Module approach, starting with a careful selection, followed by technical assistance and training, market entry and consolidation of business contacts. The programme will start in April 2011. Check the list of participating countries, countries that can apply and product list to find out whether you could qualify for participation. In case you qualify, please download the project document and the application forms.
