News Un accès plus faciles aux marchés asiatiques est offert aux PME européennes grâce à la création, par le réseau "Entreprise Europe", de 15 points de contact en Chine et en Corée du Sud. Cette ouverture a été annoncée lors de la troisième conférence annuelle du réseau européen de soutien aux entreprises qui s’est tenue à Anvers. Cela permettra aux PME de se montrer compétitives dans un contexte où il y a une intensification de la concurrence des entreprises extérieures à l’UE du fait de la crise financière. Actuellement, 25 % des petites et moyennes entreprises (PME) de l’UE exportent ou ont exporté à un moment donné au cours des 3 dernières années.

European Commission Vice-President Antonio Tajani, Commissioner for Industry and Entrepreneurship said that european small businesses drove growth and created jobs. As markets become global, an increasing share of SMEs will turn their ideas and energy into exports outside their own countries or the EU. There are huge opportunities for SMEs in large trading partners like China and South Korea, and the Enterprise Europe Network can help smooth the way. Commission members will bolster the process to promote SMEs with an update of the Small Business Act by the end of 2010 which will provide efficient support for entrepreneurs to launch their personal success story. There are now 10 partner organisations in China, in cities including Guangzhou, Xiamen and Hangzhou, and five in South Korea, including centres in Seoul and research hub Daejeon. More than two million European companies have tapped into the Enterprise Europe Network since its launch early 2008 to grow their businesses as highlighted by the following example: When a Swedish chocolate firm wanted to expand into China, it was brought quickly in contact via its home office in Borlänge with the Network's office in Wuhan, and together they found the right partner to distribute and promote its brand. Now the company is setting up a sales office in China. Award winning SMEs The conference also honoured four winning SMEs with a special ‘Network Stars’ award. These awards showcase inspiring stories of how the Network helps companies to achieve their goals. The winners are: * French electronics company Westline and Polish engineering firm Gryftec, who teamed up through the Network to reach new markets and find new business. * Belgian entrepreneur Serge Vleeschouwer and Germany company AirMed Plus, who struck a deal to market a anti-reflux baby bed in Germany, thanks to the Network. Background The Network was launched in February 2008 by the European Commission and is a key part of the EU’s Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme, which aims to encourage competitiveness in European businesses. It offers practical support and advice to more than two million European small businesses, helping them to make the most of international opportunities and start exporting. Spanning 47 countries, including EU Member States and candidate countries, the US, Russia, China, Mexico and South Korea, the Network is well placed to help SMEs trade outside national and EU borders. The services are delivered through 589 specialist business and techology organisations with 3,000 expert staff members. The Network also provides information on EU legislation and funding, offers advice on how to develop an innovative idea and helps companies to increase their chances of success when applying for EU funding.
