30 Spanish companies participate in the Spain - United Nations Day in Geneva
4/5/2016
​ICEX and the Economic and Commercial Offices of the Permanent Mission of Spain in Geneva and the Embassy of Spain in Bern, in collaboration with the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), organized the event ' Spain - United Nations Day ' on 30th and 31st March 2016 at the UN headquarters in Geneva (Palais des Nations).
Representatives of 30 Spanish companies from various sectors (construction, furniture, IT, printing, etc.) attended a briefing session on the procurement procedures for goods and services required by international organizations, as well as on Swiss law. They also had the opportunity to hold individual meetings with the heads of the procurement departments from the organizations that showed interest in some of those companies, allowing them to introduce their work. In total, the eight organizations participating in the conference (UNOG, ILO, WMO, WIPO, WHO, ITU, CERN and IFRC) requested more than 120 interviews with the Spanish companies participating in the event.
In terms of public procurement, Geneva is a major centre of interest. There is a great potential for Spanish companies to provide goods and services to the international organizations whose headquarters are in Geneva, both in their ordinary and extraordinary activities. In fact, future tenders are expected in relation to the renovation of some of these sites, particularly, the one of the Palais des Nations (UNOG headquarter), described in its Strategic Heritage Plan (SHP). The budget for these works is estimated at 1,500 million euros.
