The project idea is based to the successful model of On-line Commodity Exchange (BMTI). The market deals with on-line exchange of agricultural, food and fish products. Quick-response display of prices and quantities exchanged makes the BMTI a dependable negotiating tool. Therefore, the idea of developing such a tool in the Greece-FYROM CBC area was welcome by all partners. The project could be considered as pilot one, testing at first the operation of the e-auction platform in small part of the cross-border area and for a limited number of product categories. Hence the long-term objective is the expansion both of its geographical scope and product categories promoted within the e-auction system. An additional dimension of the project is the support of business innovation, extroversion and exporting activity in the cross-border area and especially the promotion of specific categories of agri-food products under a common cross-border brand name in the EU Markets (Italy and Germany).
