How are San Marino companies organized as regards export sales? We asked those directly involved during the course of the latest economic survey when 30% of them said they had their own Export Departments, while 56% said they appoint an employee normally assigned to other duties to look after export markets and, finally, 14% said they availed themselves of an external consultant. **
(**The percentages refer only to companies that, during telephone questionnaire, answered questions about foreign markets, which correspond to 42% of total respondents)
Precisely to help San Marino companies examine the elements needed for effective growth on foreign markets, the San Marino Chamber of Commerce is organising the seminar “Check up for internationalization”, scheduled for Monday 16 July from 9 am to 1 pm at the Best Western Palace Hotel of Serravalle.
The course will be useful for identifying the major aspects distinguishing international corporate business and the weak and strong points of companies, so as to reduce levels of uncertainty and risks associated with international business.
The program will start with check-up elements, analyzing corporate orientation and positioning on foreign markets, and the weak and strong points of companies. It will then go on to strategic and technical-management aspects, those of a business and contractual nature, negotiations, sales and distribution agreements, logistics and aspects associated with credit risks, payments and financial and insurance problems.
All the instruments will then be examined for the self-diagnosis of operations and export check-ups.
In other words, a real internationalization check-up as a way of reducing the uncertainty and risks associated with international sales, so as not to thwart, but in fact to promote the business and production endeavours of companies wanting to launch out onto export markets.
