Lessons learnt of previous projectsWhat can the
Chambers improve?
  • Generally
  • Chambers have difficulties to reach out companies
    which are not their members (i.e. fashion
    sector).
  • In the European Union
  • For the promotion and recruitment of companies in
    Europe, it is important to reach all EU Member
    States, not only at national but at
    regional/local level
  • Call for multidisciplinary and multicultural
    approach
  • Chambers can bring complementarity and a business
    angle in the project implementation
  • Chambers can bring complementarity at sectorial,
    national, and local levels together with other
    entities (i.e. associations, federations).

16
Lessons learnt of previous projectsWhat can the
Chambers improve?
  • In the Partner countries
  • How can a Chamber defend the interests of EU
    companies which are not yet present in a partner
    country 'market ?
  • For the provision of services to EU companies in
    the partner countries, it is important to address
    all EU companies, not only to Chamber's members
  • Chambers' members in partners countries are
    mainly large companies, not SMEs
  • 90 of the EU growth will come from SMEs.
    Therefore it is essential that Chambers work with
    the objective to facilitate the access of SMEs in
    the partner country's markets by representing
    their views.
