We believe that the ultimate step in the international development of a company is through its local presence in a target territory. This enables to get closer to its market, its teams and gain competitiveness to create growth. Thanks to our expertise and global outreach, many territories, cities, industrial parks, regions or states choose us for their territorial representation. We structure their marketing strategy, enhance their visibility and their attractiveness in order to expand their companies and to promote new Foreign Direct Investors which will create jobs and boost their economies.
Export & FDI Mandates
In each country, there are three types of regional stakeholders:
- Those who have not yet made of Export a key strategy of the economic development of their territory and job creation
- Those who understand it and have spent millions with representation offices globally
- those who understand it and who rely on private structures abroad which manage millions of accumulated turnover on behalf of their customers
The SALVEO Group has its own subsidiaries and indirect locations in more than 50 countries worldwide.
