We have a well-established relationship with the EBRD after several years of strategic cooperation to stimulate increased Swedish participation in the Bank's projects. Business Sweden can help Swedish companies by monitoring relevant and upcoming procurements, analyze business opportunities and decision-making processes and identify appropriate partners to form consortium.
Business Sweden's Brussels office is responsible for a qualitative and proactive EIB counseling with a focus on EIB-funded procurements and projects. The work is based on close cooperation with the office of project exports at the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The aim is to increase the participation of Swedish companies in EIB-funded projects and to generate more sales for Swedish companies within the EU member states and globally. Through a unique network of offices in aid-recipient countries, we can monitor business opportunities locally and reconnecting to the central decision level in Luxembourg.
