Our first contact was with the economic and commercial advisor of the Wallonia Export-Investment Agency's Istanbul office, Ms Catherine Bauwens, who is very responsive and efficient and offers good advice. Thanks to its guidance and support, ERAI Turkey has been working closely with the Wallonia Export-Investment Agency since May 2020.
In fact, our company is the only French-speaking consulting firm to be approved under the "chèques-entreprises scheme for "chèques l'internationalisation - Export Consultancy - Foreign Trade Specialist". As an expert recognised by the region, I am delighted to be able to advise and support Walloon companies wanting to prospect the Turkish market through the implementation of business development projects.
We are therefore a solutions partner supporting the Wallonia Export-Investment Agency's missions, particularly for development in Turkey. However, the Agency is also a one-stop shop for any foreign company interested in setting up in Wallonia or expanding its existing activities.
This professional link has also allowed me to discover the Walloon region and in particular those opportunities that could interest foreign investors. We redirect companies who ask us about this to the Wallonia Export-Investment Agency's Istanbul office. I am therefore proud to be able to represent the region of Wallonia as an ambassador in this promotional mission.
