The EU Business Avenues in South East Asia programme focuses on the growing South East Asian markets. This EU-funded initiative aims to help European companies establish long-lasting business collaborations through matchmaking and business support services, using Singapore as a hub.

The Green Energy Technologies Business Mission, under the EU Business Avenues in South East Asia programme, will travel to Singapore and Malaysia from 24 to 28 October 2016. The first part of the business mission week will see some 50 European companies in the green energy sector travelling to Singapore for two exhibition days, coinciding with the Asia Clean Energy Summit 2016 which is part of the Singapore International Energy Week.
