TradeMalta’s Internationalisation Knowledge Platform Now Live
Business people and entrepreneurs in Malta with an interest in going global can now utilise a new online platform to seek advice and hunt down international opportunities: the recently launched TradeMalta website – www.trademalta.org.
With a focus on an easy-to-navigate user experience and plenty of pages packed with helpful information, this one-stop portal enables online visitors to apply for export assistance, discover international opportunities, learn about exporting, research potential markets, and build export capabilities. Meanwhile, it also assists international companies in connecting with businesses based in Malta.
“We understand that that first step towards internationalisation can be a daunting one,” says TradeMalta’s CEO, Anton Buttigieg. “And that is exactly why this revamped portal has been designed to take the edge off that and focuses on giving interested businesses all the help they need. It is a complete service, and our genuine aim is to encourage and support local entities to become successful players in the global market.”
In fact, the website offers a vast number of services in the field, including helping companies to join trade missions, carry out market research, perform a Gap Analysis and even access international databases to find new customer leads.
“There is nothing more exciting for the team at TradeMalta than watching a local business excel internationally, and that’s exactly what we hope to see more of thanks to this website. If you are considering taking steps towards internationalisation or if you’re already exporting, visit our new website and register to learn more – and we look forward to working with you,” Mr. Buttigieg adds.
Trademalta will be officially launching the new portal on the 15th November. On this occasion, they have also invited international speaker Fraser Doherty, a Scottish entrepreneur and founder of multimillion euro business ‘Superjam’. At the event Doherty will share his story of how at a very young age, he grew his company from a small home startup to an international business. He will also be giving a training workshop on how to apply the principles set out in his book 48 Hour Start-up, to access new markets quickly.
Places for this training session are limited and applications will be accepted on a first-come-first served basis. Those interested in signing up should apply online at www.trademalta.org.
