Who we are
The International Network for Regional Trade Promotion Organisations aims to establish a meeting point between different agencies, located across the world but with similar objectives and missions, so that they can come together to share their experiences and develop joint projects. Moreover, this meeting point should not only provide a space for mutual recognition amongst similar agencies but should also increase their presence at an international level.
The key elements of this network can therefore be summarized as:
* Meeting point - Mutual recognition
* Exchange of experiences and best practices
* Joint projects
* Uniform recognition of its members by third parties
These organizations share two common denominators:
1. Sub-national/regional organizations (regional, autonomous, departmental, provincial)
2. Internationalization as a main objective
The RTPO will look for new members in order to enlarge the network and will welcome those organizations interested in strengthening the role of regional agencies in a globalized world.
