On Wednesday 24 February, the opening session of the Export Training Programme Events in Barcelona took place in the offices of the Barcelona School of Management of the Universidad Pompeu Fabra. These events are part of the agreement signed with the Algerian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CACI).
At the Excellence in Communication awards ceremony held by the prestigious Revista Imagen, the Gas Natural Fenosa Foundation First Export Programme won the gold Eikon award in the Regional Category of Relationship with the Community/CSR. The programme was founded in Argentina in 2001 to promote internationalisation in the SME sector and aims to facilitate export activity by small- and medium-sized enterprises.
The Gas Natural Fenosa Foundation held a seminar entitled “Exports and the digital tools”, led by the Director of the First Export Programme in Argentina, Pablo Furnari. The seminar took place at the Cultural Forum in the town of Zárate. The three speakers addressed the importance of digital tools when exporting.
In June, six projects were chosen as winners of the Social Entrepreneurs Programme that the Gas Natural Fenosa Foundation has been carrying out in Argentina for several years. These projects have awarded initiatives from a range of sectors, such as “Ampliando Horizontes”, “Un refugio de amor” and “La fàbrica de dulces sueños”.
