SME internationalisation

Growth of many SMEs depends on an ambitious EU trade agenda being implemented..

Possibilities of cooperation between organisations providing support for SME internationalisation should be explored, given the gaps in the service offer, and the missed opportunities for synergy between players.

SMEs have the most to gain from the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. Today, transaction costs for SMEs that want to trade across the Atlantic are prohibitively large. Tariffs are one element, but especially the differences in standards and conformity assessment procedures mean very onerous administrative burdens for SMEs.
