The sector seminars are organized twice a year by the Permanent Representations and Trade Promotion Organizations of twenty-four Member States of the European Union. These one day events are structured in two sessions: a morning session where European institutions’ officials involved in External aid programmes give an overview of the financing available for the sector chosen and an afternoon session where one to one meetings between participating companies take place.
