Finding local partners

The complexity of various procedures concerning public procurement and various requirements involving local presence might make finding a local partner or representative an attractive alternative. Many EU companies have found suitable local partners to conduct their business on their behalf, thus taking away the time and costs to deal with various procedures from a distance and provide service as a local company.
