Mission for Growth to Mexico / Columbia, 15 - 19 April 2013

As for our previous Missions, these visits are intended to:

  • Promote European business policies and to develop ties between Mexican/Colombian and EU companies by organising an interesting programme for participating companies (e.g. match-making events, discussions with investment agencies, etc.).
  • Initiate discussions with high level government representatives about monitoring the Memoranda of Understanding signed by Vice-President Tajani during his Mission for Growth in May 2012.

The presence of individual CEOs/entrepreneurs interested in cooperation with Mexico and Colombia in the delegation will be the most important key factor for the success of this Mission for Growth. VP Tajani has invited the leading EU business organisations (Business Europe, UEAPME and Eurochambres) to propose entrepreneurs, members of these organisations, as potential candidates for the Missions.

The main industrial sectors targeted during these visits are green economy, biotechnology, key enabling technologies, mining, construction and tourism.

All Enterprise Europe Network partners are kindly asked to advertise this Mission for Growth among their clients and to recruit interested SMEs as participants. Ideally, expressions of interest should be received during the course of January, although later applications may be considered.

Eligibility criteria for participants in the Mission for Growth:

    * High level representative of a European company
    * Dynamic and innovative enterprises
    * Strong international experiences and/or strong interest in the Mexican and/or Columbian markets

A detailed agenda for the company delegation's activities will be made available in due course.
