The meeting will begin at 9:30am and will include the COFIDES Chairman, Salvador Marín, COFIDES Commercial and Business Development Director, Ana Cebriá and the Director of Development Finance and European Management Director, María Vidales.
Furthermore, interested companies may request interviews with COFIDES technicians to present their projects that require financing, as well as with Extenda technicians for further details on the current consulting programs.
Likewise, Extenda will present its consulting services related to international financing at the seminar.
Extenda and COFIDES have a cooperation agreement in which they agreed to financially and technically support the Andalusian companies which intended to develop investment projects related to internationalisation.
