- European international contractors help to improve European and national image in the world
Projects realised and services provided by European construction companies are key factors in the economic and social development of more than 100 countries in all continents. The industry is thus transferring technology from Europe to people all around the world. Internationalisation and globalisation have a tradition in this industry which has won leading positions in foreign markets. Its services not only contribute to income, employment and balance of payments but equally to the enhancement of the European image. Co-operation with local partners, suppliers and subcontractors as well as training of local people provide additional benefits to host countries and help to create a climate for cross-cultural understanding.
European international contractors are committed to these aims and, consequently, are competent and reliable partners.
