Consultation: SME Internationalisation

 Period of consultation: From 16.05.2011  to 12.07.2011 – The Commission seeks the comments on a more integrated and coherent approach to public support for EU enterprises aiming to do business outside the EU.

 

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) need assistance when taking first steps to internationalise their business. While significant public resources are already devoted to SME support and a number of organisations and programmes exist at various levels, their impact can be increased by greater visibility and more effective cooperation. We propose a mapping of existing services and certain principles and priorities to guide future actions.

The consultation process started at the end of 2009 with an Issue Paper, also published on the Commission website, which was discussed with stakeholders on various occasions, including the Enterprise Policy Groups in May 2010.
