EMEx is a company based in the Netherlands. The founders are Dutch and have extensive working experience in emerging regions of Africa, Latin America, and Asia. They have worked for both private and public organizations, including the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the European Union. Now they want to use their knowledge and expertise to improve (trade) relations between emerging countries and Europe.

Tjeerd Ritmeester: "Everyone who has been in the emerging markets of Africa, Asia and Latin America knows the endless opportunities out there but also the risks involved. Civil servants from these countries, such as diplomats, are in an excellent position to help their markets by taking away concerns among foreign investors and promoting their companies in Europe. We believe that through our trainings we strengthen the skills of civil servants and enterpreneurs from emerging markets in order to capitalize upon trade and investment opportunities from and with Europe."

Our vision is that by providing civil servants and enterpreneurs with the necessary tools the European and African markets will increasingly integrade
