One of the main priorities of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce is to support and foster foreign trade among Spanish businesses, given the importance of internationalisation as an essential means to improve business competitiveness and as a lever to reactivate the economy.
In this sense, with the aim of supporting the initiation and diversification of Spanish businesses in their internationalisation processes, the Spanish Chamber of Commerce provides aid to companies through its advisory programmes as well as information and training to help them take the basic decisions needed to ensure their business's internationalisation strategy is a success.
These initiatives, alongside many others aimed at fostering exports of goods and services and the presence of Spanish businesses abroad, are described in detail in the Chamber Internationalisation Plan. This plan is drafted and executed by the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the network of chambers of commerce in Spain and with the participation of Spanish chambers of commerce abroad.
Furthermore, the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, alongside the network of chambers of commerce, is responsible for issuing certificates of origin and other certificates related to international trade and mediates and arbitrates international trade disputes, among other activities abroad.
