NRW.International GmbH (NRW.International) has been coordinating the operational tasks of foreign trade promotion in North Rhine-Westphalia since April 2007. As a public-private partnership, we support small and medium-sized enterprises in the development of important growth markets worldwide in partnership with the North Rhine-Westphalian government.
Together with our partners we organize and coordinate delegation and entrepreneur trips. In keeping with the development and growth potential in the respective target markets, these activities are accompanied politically by the state government.
As part of corporate pavilions, information service centers or small groups, companies can showcase their products and services to a broad professional audience by participation in trade fairs abroad.
North Rhine-Westphalian companies looking for partners at an international scale receive support, also in the context of our trade fair and delegation scouting. During their visits to NRW, foreign entrepreneur delegations are brought together specifically with domestic companies. NRW.International organizes a tailored professional program for delegations – depending on the requirements of the participants this can be a visit to a company, a factory tour or support in finding suitable partners for bilateral talks.
We conduct trade fair and delegation scouting as a partner in the NRW.Europa network, which is part of the international Enterprise Europe Network, composed of more than 600 organizations in over 60 countries. It provides comprehensive advice on internationalization and innovation projects, in the mediation of national and international partners as well as the search for and utilization of funds.
