European SMEs and International Trade

According to the Europe 2020 flagship Communication on an Integrated Industrial Policy
and the review of the Small Business Act, supporting the internationalization process of
the European SMEs is crucial to promote EU competitiveness. Recent data shows that
85% of new jobs, in the EU, between 2002 and 2010 were created by SMEs. However,
a very small percentage of SMEs is active beyond the Single Market, notwithstanding
rapidly growing market opportunities abroad.
The two key questions in the Workshop were : (1) what are the best policies supporting
SMEs in accessing third markets and (2) is a better coordination between national and
EU-level initiatives needed, and if so, how to accomplish this. The INTA Committee had
requested the organization of the Workshop in order to explore proposals for
implementing new strategies to improve the internationalization process.
