Support for the promotion of the international activity of Basque companies

The ZABALDU subsidies, which are non-refundable public subsidies, are aimed at supporting the promotional and operational activity of Basque companies in order to increase their penetration into foreign markets, improve their competitiveness and foster sustainable development throughout the internationalisation process.

The Internationalisation Plan must be based on all of the internationalisation initiatives of the companies. For this reason, in addition to being an initial tool whose cost is likely to be subsidised, its presentation is also an essential requirement when it comes to applying for subsidies in the rest of the internationalisation phases.
