Next 6th and 7th October the Chamber of Commerce of A Coruña will held the 8th Edition of Exporpymes, el evento de internacionalización para el fomento del comercio exterior que venimos organizando desde el año 2013 de manera ininterrumpida. En 2020, la situación sanitaria nos obligó a hacer una versión 100% virtual. This edition combines face-to-face and virtual activities, with the aim of maintaining the necessary caution the situation calls for.
The experience acquired over these years guarantees the success of a benchmark event both for companies exporting from Galicia and those importing from other countries. The trust gained motivates us to continue accompanying and supporting our companies, year after year and now more than ever, so that all together, we can move forward on the road to recovery we have already started out on.
Among many other things, in this last year and a half, we have learnt the importance of being able to adapt, of being flexible. We have all experienced, to varying degrees, tough situations, both in our personal and professional lives. But if there is one thing I am sure of, we have grown stronger, and this is going to help us to continue moving forward.
In this edition, we have invited importers from Africa, Europe, America and Asia with stakes in the food, beverage, building materials and marine sectors – all highly representative of the export activity of Galicia. At Exporpymes, therefore, Galician companies will find a great opportunity to boost their competitiveness through globalisation, both towards consolidated and emerging markets.
Galician companies with stakes in the markets represented shall have the opportunity to establish face-to-face or virtual contact with importers from more than twenty-five countries. Furthermore, qualified professionals from the Chamber of Commerce will be available to answer any questions that may arise before, during and after the fair.
I sincerely hope that this new edition of Exporpymes meets your expectations and, to this end, all of us at the Chamber of Commerce will do our utmost to ensure it does.
Before finishing, I would like to highlight the priceless contributions of the Xunta de Galicia (through the Consellería do Mar and the Galician Institute for Economic Promotion (IGAPE)), the Regional Government of A Coruña, the City Council of A Coruña, and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
Thank you very much for your support. We look forward to seeing you.
