Indian IT Delegation 2019
Indian MSME IT Delegation to Estonia (14-17 May 2019)
Development Cooperation Project of Indo Baltic Chamber of Commerce and Industry in association with Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The framework project of the Indo Baltic Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IBCCI) in association
with Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ECCI) is in its core directed towards supporting
the development and sharing experience with the business communities of selected developing countries. It is implemented in close cooperation with the Estonian Foreign Ministry (EMFA).
It consists of three main parts:
- 1. Hosting incoming delegations from developing countries
- 2. Visiting developing countries
- 3. Organizing business forums to introduce the possibilities for investment and cooperation with
certain developing areas.
Incoming delegations from India are offered a tailor-made programme according to the business interests of the incoming delegation. They are offered site visits, meetings with relevant authorities/organizations, the possibility to introduce the business cooperation possibilities in their
countries at a business seminar, B2B meetings matching their business profiles etc. The target group of a delegation are socially active members of the local business representation organizations, professional associations and/or clusters and key representatives of the government whose
responsibilities include the development of the business environment. Visits of Estonian business delegations to selected developing countries are mainly targeted at learning the cooperation possibilities of those countries – most of the delegations comprise of companies that wish to make an investment, find a partner for implementing joint business projects
for mutual benefit or to find vendors of different products and materials that they need for their business. The business forums are targeted at introducing the cooperation possibilities of certain developing
areas (Africa, Latin America, Eastern Partnership countries etc). We invite speakers from different sectors and institutions in those areas/countries to introduce the possibilities. We also invite speakers from different international organizations (UNICEF, European Commission etc) to cover the possibilities of the private sector to participate in the development cooperation activities. In addition to that, Estonian companies share their experience in doing business in those countries, which is a
valuable input for possible investors. We believe that cooperation between the business communities of Estonia and the developing
countries is of key importance to make their processes more efficient, which in turn helps the developing countries to grow and evolve.
