The Malta Chamber, as Chair of the Enterprise Europe Network’s Sector Group Retail, hosted the bi-annual meeting in Malta.
The Sector Group is a delegation of business experts from various countries that come together to offer tailored support for retail companies with the aim to help them innovate and grow internationally.
The two-day meeting discussed the work plan and strategic initiatives that are being organised in Malta and on a pan-European level to maximise partnering opportunities for selected companies. The Sector Group meeting also presented Network partners with a platform to stimulate the exchange of best practice and knowledge and foster innovation to strengthen the use of eCommerce by retail companies.
Indeed, during the two-day meeting the Malta Chamber also provided an opportunity for Maltese companies with an advanced franchise capacity to pitch their business to the network of partnering experts from several European countries.
As evidenced in its Mission Statement, the EEN Retail Sector Group aims at helping local SMEs that sell to other businesses or consumers from a physical or online outlet to develop their presence overseas – be it via e-commerce, distributors or franchise. As the way of retailing products and services change around the world, the sector group also helps these SMEs establish a sustainable supply chain, partner with the right expertise and utilise the right technology.
The Malta Chamber invites companies to contact Mr Lino Mintoff ([email protected]), Chairman, or Ms Rachel Micallef ([email protected]), alternate representative of the Sector Group, to see how they can benefit from the services offered.
