DISCOVER OUR TRADE4U APP

For whom?

The Trade4U application was developed to send targeted international opportunities to the subscribed companies. Nearly 500 more general to very specific sources are regularly checked to filter out the most interesting opportunities. In 2020, 24,423 trading opportunities were distributed.

 

Always new opportunities

These business opportunities are sent based on the company profile registered in the exporters' database. This identification is based on two criteria: the definition of the commercialised products and services on the one hand and the target markets (countries) on the other. Based on this, only the relevant information is disseminated. The company profile can be changed at any time.

Creating consortia

Available for iOS and Android, for smartphones and tablets, the application offers an essential function: creating consortia. Belgium consists mainly of SMEs, it is common that a company is not big enough to only respond to quotations issued by large international institutions. Once they agree to share contact information, a company can indicate its interest in an opportunity. The Belgian Foreign Trade Agency will connect the various interested parties. What's more, subscribers can participate free of charge in two major annual seminars organised by the Belgian Foreign Trade Agency.
