Go International – GoInt

GoInt is a Project funded by INTERREG V-A Greece – Bulgaria 2014-2020 co-operation programme focusing on enhancing international exports of AgroFood sector companies in the neighboring eligible areas between Greece and Bulgaria. GoInt is aiming to achieve this with 3 sets of deliverables focused on providing ICT tools and exports perspective to the agro-food SMEs.

Three partners with constitutional scope to support business join their forces to develop an innovative ICT platform, provide skills development, support exports in two selected target markets (Vietnam & Israel), as well as establish pioneering “Exports Support Working Groups” in order to support businesses tackle their obstacles & ameliorate business climate.

The ultimate goal of GoInt is to strengthen the factors affecting long-term entrepreneurial success of agro-food industry, such as skills labor for sales, access to EU/ national support, e-business, aggressive marketing, access to foreign markets; critical factors that identified by the survey undertaken by the Cooperation Programme in 2015.

More than 60 companies will receive guidance through the Export Support Working Groups from Bulgaria and Greece as an initial step. More than 50 companies will gain knowledge and networking via the focused trainings/ consultation and B2B meetings.

As initially designed, the project has concluded with success the participation of 5 companies in AgroMashov Exhibition in Israel on 5-6 September 2022 and two mission of approx. 20 companies in the foreign markets on Israel and Vietnam on September and November.
