International Service

With our International Service, we advise you on opening up new markets abroad, network you globally and inform you about foreign trade promotion programs.

From Berlin into the world

Berlin is the most international city in Germany and offers ideal conditions for expansion into foreign markets. We, Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie GmbH, the Berlin economic development agency, offer you a wide range of contact and cooperation opportunities with our network consisting of our Area Managers, the world's largest SME network, the Enterprise Europe Network, the foreign offices in the USA and China and the AfricaBerlin Network.

With measures including international trade fairs by means of the Berlin-Brandenburg trade fair program, the programs for internationalization, the BMWK's market development program or participation in delegation trips - worldwide or here in Berlin - we offer you a wide range of opportunities to meet potential international business partners. Have a look at our action plan (PDF).

In addition, we provide information on foreign trade promotion for Berlin companies via the Program for Internationalization, on federal funding programs for foreign trade as well as EU funding, EU-wide calls for proposals and international calls with a focus on Horizon Europe.
