eTrade Center opens international cooperation platform

Heidelberg/Berlin - Germany based Empanada Group has launched an international and multilingual cooperation platform at www.etradecenter.com. Sellers and buyers, manufacturers and dealers, service providers and freelancers from all over the world can find national and international business partners, offer their products and services, and check up on those of others quickly and precisely.

"Covering 380 trade sectors in 250 cities and 60 countries, eTrade Center is a central information platform for global development, and therefore one of the biggest directories for international business," explained eTrade Center's CEO, Cyriacus Schultze, at the opening. "Our motto is "trade smartly": keep searches to a minimum and find things quickly."

The search for potential business partners can be done in German, English or Spanish. Other language versions, e.g. Russian, Arabic and Mandarin are already in the pipeline. Contrary to traditional contact platforms, eTrade Center is free of charge and absolutely commercial-free.

An Internet B2B platform can, of course, never replace the personal contact between business partners. But the eTrade Center enables selective filtering of interesting business opportunities and provides unbureaucratic contact possibilities within minutes. The savings in both time and money are substantial and obvious.

The eTrade Center is an enterprise of the Empanada Group, with its headquarters based in Heidelberg (Germany), and offices in Berlin and Zurich. The company has been successfully developing international eCommerce projects for over 10 years. During the next few months, while the database is being stocked with content and offers, use of the eTrade Center is free of charge. From mid-2007, members will be charged a monthly membership fee, but the first thousand registered companies can continue to enjoy free use of the eTrade Center until end 2008.
