OUR ACTIVITY

INTERNATIONALIZATION

The Italian economic structure is mainly made up of small and medium-sized companies that, thanks to their great creativity and talent, have succeeded over the years in developing more and more advanced know-how, but which often have turned exclusively to the internal market and have had difficulty resisting the phenomena of globalization that now see large companies working at a global level and in a logic of interaction on large common platforms from which to draw quickly and with enormous savings in time and financial resources.
The average and small Italian company must now consider the European market as an internal market and be able to confront the rest of the world in order to assert its undoubted capacity to create added value.
To operate on international markets it is necessary to have an international structure, know the local cultures, the habits and the rules of business of the single markets, open commercial and productive units in the target countries, conquering market spaces.
BDB is able to develop projects for internationalization that consider the actual needs and potential of customers and support them with a minimum investment for the creation of commercial networks, local companies and the identification of industrial and financial partners.
