A resilient international network supports our members in mastering their tasks. Especially in times of crisis and economic change, it is these resilient relationships that enable rapid action.

With our international partner network, we create access to markets, networks, institutions and government organisations. Always with the aim of helping our members with their questions and challenges.

The Global Sourcing Expert Council is for members only and deals with topics related to global procurement, SCM and logistics.

Our International Partner Network

For the value of our members, BME cooperates and works together with various international bodies, institutions and associations:

  • Institutional Partners: EU-Commission, Federal Minitsties, Embassies, etc.
