The ECCP promotes trade and investments between Europe and the Philippines by providing a wide range of information, import assistance, counseling on the local business environment, and advice on how to invest in the Philippines. The ECCP also offers business advisory services, market/feasibility studies, and other market entry requirements of newcomers to the Philippines market.
Visiting or exhibiting in international trade fairs is one of the most effective market entry measures. The ECCP, as an international trade fair information center, provides extensive services to exhibitors and visitors of European and Asian trade fairs. The ECCP also represents some of the leading European fairs in fashion and textiles, consumer goods, electronics, information technologies, industrial goods, building materials, and food.
The ECCP endorses and co-organizes Philippine trade fairs and shows which are of interest to European exhibitors.
ECCP has created two affiliates in trade fair services: Virtual Fairs, an online portal that allows businesses to showcase their products and services 24/7, leading to solid business opportunities, regardless of location or timezone. Fairs & More Inc. is an international trade fair company which organizes exhibitor and visitor packages for companies to internationally-recognized trade fairs, exhibitions and congresses.
The ECCP organizes business meetings and seminars with resource speakers from the Philippines, Asia, and Europe, which coordinate the position of the business sector as well as dialogues with Philippine government officials on important economic issues affecting Philippine-European business relations. Moreover, the ECCP enjoys the cooperation of the leading Philippine and European trade and business organizations and maintains close links to the commercial sections of the European embassies and the Delegation of the European Commission in the Philippines.
One of the objectives of the ECCP is to strengthen commercial and investment relations to the benefit of companies in Europe and the Philippines. Special programs have been developed to identify partners in technology, production, subcontracting, distribution or joint venture opportunities in both markets. Counseling and linkages to support facilities form part of our services alongside market intelligence and research services.
