ABOUT US

The EU-Philippines Business Network (EPBN) is a project co-funded by the EU and implemented by a consortium of European Chambers of Commerce based in the Philippines. Its aim is to provide a support framework for European companies, especially SMEs, interested in exporting to or investing in the Philippines. A dedicated team, composed of an executive office and partner coordinators, is working to provide a full spectrum of support services to interested companies.

To meet this objective, EPBN adopts a threefold approach of outreach, support services and advocating for a level playing field for EU SMEs. Effectively, it provides a strong support system at every stage of market access to the Philippine market for interested businesses.

By pooling together the expertise of partner chambers in the Philippines, coordinating with ASEAN partners and utilizing resources made available by the EU, the project intends to pave way for EU businesses to successfully access one of the fastest growing and most dynamic economies in the South-East Asian region.
