Why is the BalticSupply project needed?

“SMEs are the economic and social backbone of the Baltic Sea Region and need the best possible support. This is especially true for the area of supply chains that need to be strengthened, so that the companies stay competitive in the globalized world”.

Dr. Max Hogeforster
Project Manager

Hanseatic Parliament, Germany
 

"In small countries - like Estonia is, with very limited capacity of domestic market, economy can develop only by speeding up and broadening export. The BalticSupply will support Estonian SMEs to network and find appropriate place in value chain of production within clusters defined within the project".

Dr. Anne Randmer
CEO, Board Member of Association of Estonian SMEs

The Centre for Development Programs (EMI-ECO), Estonia
 

“When the economy is depressed, as has been the case for a long time now, it is utmost important to focus on new markets and new sources of revenue. There is no doubt that this project will help us and other companies to find opportunities that we would not have recognized ourselves".

Flemming Paasch
Managing Director, CEO

Easyfood, Denmark
 

“The development and implementation of an interactive web portal with private and public tenders provide a better position for SMES to work as sub suppliers to large private and public OEMs within the three clusters of the project: Health and Food, Maritime Industries, and Energy and Infrastructure. We expect a potential impact for South Danish SMEs regarding new market entrances in the Baltic Sea area, as well as the potential of taking part in cluster development for minor SMEs currently unable to make bits at large tenders.”
