The Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade (ICEX) is offering Spanish companies interested in international expansion four new business centers in Prague (the Czech Republic), Warsaw (Poland), Bogota (Colombia) and Istanbul (Turkey).
With these additions there are now 16 such centers overseas: Algiers (Algeria), Guangzhou, Peking and Shanghai (China), Chicago (USA), Dubai (UAE), Mumbai (India), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Casablanca (Morocco), Mexico City (Mexico), Bucharest (Romania) and Moscow (Russia).
The business centers are located within the Trade Commissions of Spain and offer Spanish companies a fully equipped independent work area with technical and administrative support to assist their international business activities.
Other services also facilitate the daily needs of the companies, such as assistance in contracting logistical services, transportation, translations, messengers, etc.
The business centers were set up in those markets that are harder for Spanish companies to access because of language barriers, lack of information, administrative structure, etc.
