Doing Business with the Balkans - 10th July 2012

Date: Tuesday, 10th July 2012

Venue: Village Hotel, Fallows Way, Whiston, L35 1RZ


The Event:

The Balkans not only offer business opportunities in their own right but can also be used as gateway markets to South-Eastern Europe.  As candidates for EU membership, there is growing interest in the opportunities for trade to Serbia and Croatia in particular.


With sector opportunities in the region including renewable energy, energy efficiency, water and waste management, construction, automotive, transport and logistics, food and agriculture and chemicals and pharmaceuticals, there is great potential for local companies to do business in the region.


Commercial Officers from Serbia and Croatia will be presenting at the event with an opportunity for one-to-one meetings following the event as well as hearing from local companies who have experience trading with the region.
