As the EU continues to expand, European businesses must look to how they can trade across increasing numbers of regional boundaries, languages, cultures and laws, both within the EU and across the greater Europe.
Organisations should not confuse Europe with the EU – there are many trading pacts that cover the greater Europe.
The EU has over 25 million businesses within it – yet less than 3% of European organisations trade outside of their home country. Europe is not a single trading entity – each country still clings to divisive trade and legal differences. Outsourcing the problem can free up an organisation to make the most of a Pan-European approach, yet enable them to focus on core competencies.
