SMEs in the textile - clothing sector of the SUDOE area share difficulties in internationalizing their products that need to be faced together: low cross-sectoral and inter-sectoral cooperation, limited resources and the difficulty of identifying opportunities in foreign markets due to the small size of the companies.
INTER-TEX promotes the joint internationalization of SMEs in the sector, boosting the supply and demand between the territories, activating trade cooperation initiatives and creating new transnational value chains.
The project is structured around the creation of:
A transnational network of cooperation
public and private to support the internationalization
6 internationalization support tools
for pilot testing.
During the project, the following products will be carried out:
The transnational network of public-private cooperation to support the internationalization of SMEs in the textile and clothing sector of the SUDOE region
