Eastern Partnership: Ready to Trade - an EU4Business initiative 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.
In Belarus, the project supports the textile and clothing sector, assisting SMEs in producing value added goods in accordance with international and EU market requirements and linking with EU markets. While the project is mainly focused on SMEs, some targeted assistance to local BSOs, including national trade promotion organisations, is also provided. Support is directed to helping companies access the EU market, through targeted capacity-building, advisory services and market access activities.
