Czech Industry and Trade Ministry to extend its export-supporting network

The Czech Industry and Trade Ministry would like to extend its network of offices in foreign countries that promote Czech exports by half. Minister Milan Kocourek told reporters on Tuesday that the existing network of ten such centres will be extended to cover all regions of the world. The Czech Foreign Ministry recently stopped hosting pro-export offices in their own facilities, and the economic agenda should be managed by diplomats. The move did not satisfy Czech exporters who were pushing for an independent export-supporting network.
