The Ministry of SMEs, Commerce and Business Environment (MIMMCMA), in partnership with the Geneva-based International Trade Centre on Wednesday launched the first Romanian foreign trade web portal.
The http://www.portaldecomert.ro/ portal is an important element in Romania’s National Foreign Trade Strategy and is also the first such instrument in Romania.
Built with support from the Swiss Foreign Trade Institute, the portal provides all the necessary information Romanian small and medium-sized enterprises need to enter foreign markets, from product information to regulations in force in EU countries and other areas, how to lodge complaints when hitting against bureaucratic or protectionist obstacles, etc, MIMMCMA informs in a press releases.
This is an interactive system of information, knowledge and counsel to the local Romanian business environment concerning foreign markets and the most efficient ways of concluding international trade transactions and develop exportation.
The portal provides business people with comprehensive, 24/7 information about Romania’s trade representation offices abroad and alerts when events of interest occur.
The system is designed to keep direct, rapid and efficient operational ties between local business communities and the external markets through a network of commercial and economic representations abroad of the MIMMCMA and with support from the internal network of foreign trade services.
The portal is also thought as a recipient of foreign trade intelligence and a binding force for the efforts of all those involved in Romania’s foreign trade, to offer exporters an opportunity to steer their business and help them draw up foreign market entry strategies.
