Tehnopol supports the export of Estonian companies to China, Malaysia and Chile
Over the next two years, Science Park Tehnopol will have the opportunity to help Estonian companies operating in the fields of green technologies and smart cities to export their products and services to China, Malaysia and Chile.
According to Anu Puusaag, Manager of Business Services for Tehnopol, companies that offer green technology or smart city solutions, and are looking to export these to China, Malaysia, or Chile, are invited to join two different projects. ‘The areas of activity for the projects in China are in Hebei, located in the north; in Guangzhou, China’s third largest city; and the north-east regions of Jinan and Tianjin. The implementation of smart city activities is already underway in several of these regions, and the public as well as private sector are consciously searching for new smart solutions,’ explained Puusaag.
Tehnopol is mainly looking for companies offering products and services in the fields of mobility, healthy living environment, population, green technology and energy efficiency to join it in entering new target markets.
‘We mainly offer companies personal mentorship, which takes into consideration the specific business interests of a company, we help companies to prepare to enter new markets and support companies in finding business contacts within those markets. In addition, we are planning to undertake export missions to each region,’ added Puusaag.
Marketing events are being organised for companies within the framework of the project, and technical advice – on adapting products and services to the needs of the target market – is being offered. The goal is the starting of sales activity in the target country by the countries participating in the project.
Partners from Finland and Sweden have also been included in the project, and several activities are being brought to life in parallel with Finnish, Swedish and Estonian companies, in order to support communication between companies in Northern Europe.
The first information day for companies interested in exporting green technology will be held in Helsinki, on 12 June, where project opportunities in Malaysia and China will be discussed in greater detail. The next information day will take place in September.
Projects are financed by Interreg Central Baltic for two year period spring 2019 – spring 2021.
