European Business Organisations (EBO) Worldwide Network

With the support of the European Commission, the EBO Worldwide Network was created in 2001 between representatives of EU business associations in non-EU countries and chambers of commerce. It stands as the sole network representing EU-wide business interests in Third Countries.

The main objective of this network is to promote exchanges of views between these associations and their host countries and to establish closer relationships between the Commission services and these organisations, raise awareness on EU policy priorities and activities and improve the market access for European business in third countries.

The EBO Worldwide Network, which extends to more than twenty countries around the world, aims at providing a lobbying, information and networking platform for European businesses worldwide.

The growing network of European Business Organisations currently connects European business associations and chambers of commerce located in Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, Russia, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, USA and Vietnam.

From 13 to 15 November 2013, the EBO Worldwide Network met in Yangon/Myanmar for their 7th Global Meeting. The next meeting will take place in June 2014 in Brussels.
