Many companies across the world have the desire to export their activities outside their national borders, which could be initiated in different ways, such as : being present at fairs and exhibitions in order to capture trends and find
out what competitors are offering; developing a relationship with their abroad customers, who can assist the firm in the export and integration processes in the host country; being present on social media; developing contacts with other firms located in the
same region, allowing knowledge sharing and encouraging local firms to export. The objective of this workshop is not only to exchange best practices of export management from SMEs and MNCs but also the role they play together, the future strategy the companies
should adopt to respond to global challenges, as well as the dark side of exporting relationships. During this scientific workshop, the role MNCs and SMEs play together in regional export performance will be discussed. The future strategies the companies should
adopt to respond to the current global challenges and also the dark side of the exporting relationships will be debated. This workshop aims at creating relationships between economic sciences and management sciences and promoting this interdisciplinary analysis
