Promoting Exports to Central and Eastern Europe
KOW Country Reps:
Our team in Switzerland is complemented by local country experts with experience in internationalization. These experts have worked as project managers in market research and client/partner acquisition or have a convincing track record of successfully accompanying foreign investments.

Additional network of business lawyers, tax and financial experts in the target country;
international service providers in forwarding and logistics to/from Eastern Europe, customs brokers;
facilitating contact to government offices at national and regional levels and other helpful contact points for companies:

Thanks to over 15 years of intensive work in foreign trade with Eastern Europe, KOW now has easy and quick access to local industry experts and economic services. We can fall back on these solid contacts depending on the client’s request. We are happy to make use of this network for you too.
 
Language Services for Eastern European Languages
We have high standards of quality and only use qualified, professional translators and interpreters. Not only does the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs rely on these standards. Many SMEs also benefit from these standards as do some large companies, the legal system and a number of different private individuals. More details are available under Language Services
