Albania

Albania’s positive economic transformation continues, bringing with it enormous opportunity and potential. There is still much to do for the country to be able to stand on its own two feet in the long run, and promoting three important export sectors will certainly help.

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Close to important markets, with a well-trained workforce and steady production: Bosnia and Herzegovina offers good options to importers of natural ingredients, value-added textiles, or technical wood.

Colombia

Processed exotic fruit, vegetables and nuts; natural ingredients for oils and extracts, and much more. If you don’t import products from Colombia, you can still enjoy the country’s variety and rich contrasts as a responsible tourist.

Indonesia

The current government is working toward a business-friendly climate. Regulations and administrative hurdles to exports are being removed and Indonesia’s economy is becoming more competitive.

North Macedonia

Niche markets and undiscovered potential in North Macedonia: A travel destination and producer of natural ingredients and value-added textiles.

Morocco

Featuring a positive investment climate and situated only 14 kilometers from Europe, Morocco actively promotes key sectors such as fisheries, processed foods and value-added textiles.

Peru

Discover the potential of Peruvian products. We can identify excellent opportunities for processed foods and certified technical wood. And for sustainable tourism as well

Serbia

Short distances, efficient logistics and reliable products: Serbia is an option worth investigating for importers of natural ingredients, value-added textiles, or technical wood.

South Africa

South Africa offers a developed export sector for processed foods and natural ingredients. It is well worth it to diversify.

Tunisia

Ideally situated between Europe and Africa, Tunesia has what it takes to become an important exporter of fish, seafood, processed foods and natural ingredients.

Vietnam

Vietnam’s economy has been growing rapidly for years and Vietnamese products are now available in markets the world over. SIPPO supports importers of value-added textiles and technical wood.
