The Chamber of Commerce and Industry discussed the possibilities of exporting Pridnestrovian goods to the world market
On September 28, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry held a round table “Tools and Methods for Supporting Export Development”. This theme is actual for Pridnestrovie at all times, and the aim of the round table was to designate the prospects for export development and entering a new market.
Among the participants of the round table are representatives of small, medium and large businesses from Pridnestrovie, Moldova and Italy.
The round table was held within the framework of the project “Business cooperation to increase the export potential of companies”. The project is financed by the European Union, implemented by the United Nations Development Program.
The main idea of the whole meeting was the questions that each enterprise should initially answer: when, how and where to sell the goods?
The head of the foreign economic relations department of the CCI, Vladimir Isaev, noted that in order to successfully overcome all barriers, it is necessary to carefully study whether the company’s offer is timely and innovative.
Within the framework of the round table the largest exporters of the republic “KVINT”, “Aquatir” and “Tirotex” shared their experience of promotion of their products to foreign markets.
Representative of JSC “KVINT” Oleg Ionku underlined that last year the company supplied its products to 27 countries of Europe, Asia and Africa. At the same time 85% of the products were sent to the CIS countries. But despite the long history and good reputation, KVINT still faces difficulties.
Within the event representatives of company “Tirotex”, the largest producer of textiles in Europe, also told about their achievements.
The company’s products are supplied to more than 30 countries, most of which are European. The deputy head of the foreign economic relations department Denis Vasilenkov noted that for the European client for many years “Tirotex” is a brand that includes a production site.
“Aquatir” is another export-oriented enterprise in Pridnestrovie. It is a large-scale complex for the cultivation and industrial processing of sturgeons. Up to 1.7 tons of natural black caviar per year is produced at the enterprise on the basis of intensive technologies.
No less interesting were the speeches of representatives of the State Customs Committee of Pridnestrovie and the CCI.
Summing up the meeting, Vladimir Isaev noted that the main goal was achieved: small businesses were able to hear for themselves the necessary information that they would not find on the pages of books and the Internet. They also learned about the tricks that can be used to enter new markets.
