Eastern Partnership: Ready to Trade - an EU4Business initiative
The project helps small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to access new markets with a focus on the EU, helping SMEs identify and comply with quality and standards to meet international requirements, linking them with buyers along the value chain, and providing cluster support.
The project primarily supports the agro-processing sector in Georgia, focusing on processed fruits and vegetables, non-alcoholic beverages, processed hazelnuts, dried fruits, spices (bay leaf), and tea. Activities assist exporting and export-ready SMEs in producing value added goods in accordance with international and EU market requirements and linking with EU markets. Some targeted assistance to local BSOs is also provided. Support is directed to helping companies access the EU market, through targeted capacity-building, advisory services and market access activities.
