Eastern Partnership: Ready to Trade - an EU4Business initiative
The project provides analysis of selected value chains and export market opportunities for SMEs, coaching, training and business advisory services to selected businesses, support to sectoral BSOs, support for participation in trade fairs, B2B and study visits, and facilitation of linkages.
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.
