Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

Small and medium-sized enterprises with international potential can receive support for counselling and assistance in the Myanmar market by the Trade Council in Yangon. 

Small and medium-sized enterprises are heard

The great number of small and medium-sized Danish enterprises constitutes a huge export potential – and the Trade Council therefore continues its special focus on these enterprises.

The Trade Council has a number of programmes especially targeted at the small and medium sized companies with international potential. The aim is to promote the internationalization of small and medium-sized Danish enterprises and assist them with opportunities in export markets.

The Trade Council enters into strategic partnerships with global Danish companies. The most global Danish companies – small as well as large companies – can enter into Key Account Agreements with the Trade Council in order to use the Ministry of Foreign Affairs/ the Danish Embassies more strategically to promote their exports globally. The companies are assigned a permanent adviser, who is available 24/7. Please contact us for more information.
