Since 2016, EU Gateway | Business Avenues organised 10 business missions for the Green Energy Technologies sector in several markets in Asia. During these events, European companies specialised in manufacturing, operations, and maintenance solutions for renewables had the opportunity to meet major producers in the field, from Japan, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
Four of these missions took place in the Republic of Korea, three in Japan and three were focused on South East Asia countries like Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia.
Participants came from nearly all the European Member States and many achieved results within a year from the EU-funded mission. Thanks to the organisers, nearly 3900 meetings were established prior to the mission and almost 4800 useful business meetings took place in all the target Asian markets. The first seven missions alone generated over 800 new jobs in Europe, following the first 12 months from the international exhibitions. 89% of the responding participating companies grew their businesses in their chosen target markets or were expecting to do so following the missions.
