Project Summary:

Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang municipalities in Vietnam as well as the Guangzhou region and the Hebei province in China, are currently implementing Smart City Master Plans (or equivalent masterplans) and are actively looking for different smart solutions to implement these plans. SMEs specialised in smart solutions in the Central Baltic region, have the potential to provide such solutions but, need business support to reach the actual deals.
Project 4SmartGrowth aims at increasing export possibilities in these markets for Central Baltic SMEs by taking advantage of the already existing business connections that project partners have established separately. In the framework of the project, promising SMEs will be selected and trained to increase their export opportunities in these markets.
These activities will be supported by export missions and pilots.
