EU SME Centre signs an MoU with Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Cyprus-China Business Association

On 14 April 2021, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was re-signed between the EU SME Centre and two linked organisations: Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Cyprus-China Business Association (CyChiba).

Following the previous successful cooperation developed during phase II on assisting Cypriot SMEs plan and develop their market entry strategy into China, the renewal of this MoU is to further strengthen the existing collaboration and provide a framework to continue improving the level of readiness of Cypriot SMEs towards the Chinese market.

The EU SME Centre is looking forward to continuing supporting CCCI, CyChiba and their members getting ready to do business with China through the organisation of China-related business activities in both China and Europe, as we did in March 2020 when one of our experts lectured training workshop in Nicosia on how to do E-commerce in China

We are excited to have CCCI and CyChiba as partners and we are looking forward to organising new activities in the coming months so remember to stay updated on our website, newsletter, and social media.

If you are a business support organisation in EU or a COSME country and have affiliated companies interested in the Chinese market, please contact our Partnership Coordinator to obtain further information about partnerships and collaborations. The EU SME Centre offers a wide range of complimentary services to partners and affiliated SMEs to improve their readiness to the market.
