BRE (Bureau de Rapprochement des Entreprises or Business Cooperation Center) and BC-Net (Business Cooperation Network) are information networks designed to broker cross-border business partnerships between SMEs both within Europe and outside.
Also, BC-Net members commit themselves to providing consultancy services to interested enterprises, which is not required for membership in the BRE.
In order to provide the infrastructure necessary for decentralized business cooperation, the 1996 Joint Council agreed to introduce both BRE and BC-Net into the GCC.
While BRE and BC-Net serve to disseminate information on investment opportunities, ECIP (European Community Investment Partners) is a financial instrument that facilitates the creation of joint ventures between SMEs located in the European Union and those in a diverse range of developing countries.
