A positive assessment of profex export programme

Since the end of 2014 up to last March, Fundiciones Bereciartu has taken part in the programme PROFEX (Supported Export Programme) promoted by the Basque Government in cooperation with Basque Chambers of Commerce.

The programme has based on three key and differential factors:

  • Have a professional to perform the commercial function.
  • The grouping and collaboration between three companies, which encourages all of us to look for synergies and to share experiences.
  • The methodology and coordination of Gipuzkoa Chamber of Commerce.

We would like to stand out that the programme has been eminently practical, with market investigation activities, making contacts, visits and bids.

In our opinion, this point has been the strong point of the programme:  its action-orientated trait, as well as its customer and market orientated trait. In our case, having had the focus on the French market, and having been able to access and know about this market.

We would like to thank the PROFEX professional, the Gipuzkoa Chamber of Commerce and the Basque Government, for having gave us the chance to take part in this programme at this initiation phase, which continues with other programmes and resources.
