The road might seem long from a small company in the Danish town of Slagelse in the western part of Zealand to the immense Chinese market.
But a year into the international project at Slagelse Erhvervscenter, the road has already become a great deal shorter.
“We have established an exciting partnership with the wealthy Chinese town Wenzhou, Creating business bonds
where we can present our local businesses to our contact at the city council, and he can help us connect to relevant Chinese businesses,”
says Kim Bøhmert, director of internationalisation at Slagelse Erhvervscenter.
Last year, Slagelse Erhvervscenter brought a group of locals to visit Wenzhou.
Among the participants was the mayor of Slagelse and, among the results of the trip, Creating business bonds
exchange agreements between students and teachers of schools were reached in Slagelse and Wenzhou, to the great joy of both parties.
20 to 30 local companies are joining Slagelse Erhvervscenter in Wenzhou this year to establish valuable business connections.
“It’s a great opportunity for the participants to enter the Chinese market,
but also for the Chinese to develop their welfare technology and sustainable energy, for example,” Bøhmert explains.
And at the core of these corporate bonds is Slagelse Erhvervscenter.
They guide companies interested in exporting their business
internationally, and keep an eye out for local companies whose businesses show potential for international export.
“We screen all companies to see if their products are eligible for export and find out whether they are ready to jump into it or have a few steps to go before making the big leap,”
says Bøhmert. “Either way, we help those who are interested by creating a business plan to prepare them for the next move towards international export.”
