This initiative is part of the First Export Programme, which was founded in Argentina in 2001 to create another way of dealing with the economic crisis in the country at the time and aims to facilitate export activity for Argentinian SMEs, improve their ability to form partnerships, and offer free training, advice and follow-up.
The seminar aims to provide a decisive contribution to training SME business people and independent professionals to provide the basics for consolidating in the international market. Just as in the last two years, they formed part of the business training programme for Spanish SMEs, which enabled them to expand their network of contacts and learn about new experiences.
“We are very satisfied to be able to award the training and business grant for the tenth consecutive year, providing an excellence programme for Argentinian SMEs, which enables them to develop in foreign trade,” said Bettina Llapur, Director of the Gas Natural Fenosa Foundation in Argentina.
