Information Session: Malta Enterprise Support to businesses to expand outside Malta

GRTU is organising an information session during which Malta Enterprise will give a short presentation on support to businesses to expand outside Malta. GRTU emphasises that many types of businesses can be interested in working outside Malta and NOT manufacturing only.


Malta Enterprise aims to support SMEs to develop and  diversify their activities, penetrate new markets, increase competitiveness, develop new products and services, and consolidate their existing market share. The support we will be discussing are:

Delegation visits: Malta Enterprise will be presenting the list of Delegations for 2012. The delegation visits provide opportunities for Joint Ventures, Technology Transfer, Licensing and Franchising, Exports and Trading. MaltaEnterprise will assist through the organisation of business seminars, matchmaking events, trade exhibitions, follow-ups and market research. Participants in delegation visits have 60% of the cost of travel and accommodation covered by Malta Enterprise.

Country Specialist Support: Enterprises may benefit from the expertise of the specialists who will support them to carry out preliminary assessments of their plans of investment or expansion in a particular country.

Participation in Fairs: Participation at International trade fairs are a unique and rewarding experience.  Participation will undoubtedly allow enterprises to reap a number of benefits since they will be able to experience the market on a first hand basis, discover new insights, and establish potential business partners. Malta Enterprise will financially support part of the Rental of exhibition space / stand, Stand construction services, Freight expenses incurred for shipping materials / exhibits required to setup and run the stand, Travel and Per Diem

Gateway to Export: Malta Enterprise administers an initiative aimed at encouraging Micro and Small Enterprises to assess whether or not they are ready to venture into new markets through their exports (Not only manufacturing). The initiative's aim is to give participating enterprises the skills, know-how and confidence to excel in the international marketplace.  A Business Specialist will mentor the participating enterprise through the various stages of preparing for this exciting programme and will help towards the company's readiness for export.  It is a structured, yet flexible, programme that can be completed in around 18 months.
