Evenement dataVan 19 oktober 2020 09:00 Tot 29 oktober 2020 17:00
As a follow-up to the Circular Economy Mission to Mexico in April 2019, a Circular Economy Forum and Business-to-Business virtual events are being organised. The goal is to bring together European companies and Mexican companies from the Northern States of Mexico (more specifically Chichuachua, Sonora).
These B2B virtual events will take place from Monday 19 to Thursday 22 October, and from Monday 26 to Thursday 29 October 2020.
Developing a circular economy is essential to foster sustainable economic growth and generate new jobs, especially in the context of the economic recovery following the crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemia. Further promoting the circular economy is a priority of the von der Leyen Commission, as outlined by the EU Green Deal and detailed in the Circular Economy Action Plan presented by the Commission last March. It is also part of the green recovery envisaged by the EU as a key element of international cooperation.
Mexico has shown interest in transitioning from a linear to a circular economy, and the Mexican states and municipalities have demonstrated serious commitment and often are leading this process.
The Circular Economy Forum started with a series of webinars, focusing on different aspects of the Circular Economy, during which EU policies and experiences were presented, and will now focus on B2B with the following objectives:
- To help EU green business and in particular SMEs to operate internationally by exploiting green business opportunities in the European Union and in Mexico,
- To promote green business partnerships in targeted sectors by participating in matchmaking events with local entrepreneurs in Mexico.
These virtual B2B meetings will be organised with the support of the EU Delegation in Mexico using a dedicated "B2Match" platform. The B2B marketplace, will allow attendees to upload all the information you select to promote your company along with different tools to identify suitable partners and successfully organize your business agenda.
We would be delighted if you could virtually join us for this event. We believe that the participation of individual CEOs/entrepreneurs who are interested in fostering circular economy in Mexico will make a major contribution to the success of Forum.
