Total is sponsoring the event and will host a VIE* co-op placement participant or an intern to support a development project. This is just one of several methods that Total has adopted to help drive economic growth in its host regions.
In China, Total has already hosted 24 VIE co-op placement participants and 16 interns from French SMEs. Similarly, Total also offers support to Chinese SMEs planning to set up business in France.
These initiatives are the backbone of the local business support program that Total created to help SMEs start up or expand in its host countries or regions. Since the creation of the program 30 years ago, Total has helped more than 3,000 SMEs worldwide by providing them with technological, financial and international development assistance. Today, in addition to initiatives in France, the local business support program actively backs SMEs in Angola, Belgium, Cambodia and the Congo, and has projects underway in Yemen, Syria, Germany and Italy.
