European Enterprise Promotion Award 2017: EU Commission’s recognition for the work of the IPD

 

Bonn/Tallinn, 04.12.2017 - As part of its European Enterprise Promotion Awards 2017, the EU Commission recognised the IPD as a special project in the category “Supporting the internationalisation of business”. The prize has been awarded by the European Commission since 2006. Special mention was made of the outstanding support that the IPD offers for the internationalisation of small and medium-sized enterprises in its partner countries. In its German preliminary decision, the expert jury of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy had already shown itself impressed by the IPD, recognising it as an initiative for the sustainable and structured import promotion of products from selected developing and emerging countries.

The European Enterprise Promotion Awards reward private and public institutions who promote entrepreneurship and small business at the national, regional and local level. Initiatives from all EU countries, as well as Iceland, Serbia, and Turkey can take part in the competition. Since 2006, over 2,800 projects have entered the awards and together they have supported the creation of thousands of new companies.
The award ceremony will take place in November in Tallinn within the SME Assembly of the European Commission.
