Malta Enterprise (ME) administers an initiative aimed at encouraging Micro and Small Enterprises to assess whether or not they are ready to venture into new markets through their exports.
The initiative’s aim is to give participating enterprises the skills, know-how and confidence to excel in the international marketplace. A Business Specialist will mentor the participating enterprise through the various stages of preparing for this exciting programme and will help towards the company’s readiness for export. It is a structured, yet flexible, programme that can be completed in around 18 months.
Initially, interested enterprises are to follow, an online export assessment questionnaire to help gauge their export readiness. For each question, select the best answer that represents the business action. Remember that this is only a guide, and a low score shouldn’t discourage anyone – it may just mean one needs to work on their export skills a bit more.
This guide will help to clearly identify export or capability issues and move the enterprise towards the next stage of its export planning.
If interested to follow-up on the ‘Gateway to Export’ programme, please contact the Internationalisation Unit at ME on tel: 2542 3430 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
