Miniño stressed that exports are not only a source of growth and profitability, but also guarantee the survival of companies in the long term. She said the opportunities in said market in an increasingly connected world should be seized.
Adoexpo’s Executive Vice President stressed that this guide is a tool for companies wishing to venture into international markets, allowing them to have accurate information to be more competitive, have greater access to consumers in other destinations and know the procedures to perform export operations in a successful way
“Faced with the imminent and accelerated opening of new markets, the country has the challenge of becoming increasingly competitive, which involves strategies to promote exports, supporting companies to add more and more value to their exportable offer and promoting the necessary instruments that guarantee compliance with the requirements of global markets,” she said.
