Make Europe Work!®

Make Europe Work!® aims to help businesses benefit from opportunities for international trade and investment. It takes a practical and pragmatic approach by harnessing the considerable support available through the network of COBCOE member chambers of commerce (and their members), Affiliate chambers and corporate Partners. 

Make Europe Work!® was launched in 2014 to give businesses the information, help and support that can be of real value to them. The initiative draws on the experience and expertise of the COBCOE network to combine practical assistance with knowledge sharing, a key part of which is the bi-annual Make Europe Work!® magazine and events.
