Together with the International Trade Organization (ITC), CBI is implementing the Ready to Trade project in 6 Eastern Partnership countries to the EU. CBI’s activities focus on the development of the garments industry in the Republic of Moldova and the Republic of Belarus, specifically to develop the export of garments to Europe. The garments sector was identified in the Ready to Trade project as one of the most promising sectors in view of developing exports to the European market. Early 2019, companies who will participate in the program have been selected in both countries, with the aim to further develop their exports in the near future. In the remaining project period (until Q1 2021), these companies will be trained on export marketing, and will participate in market entry activities to get introduced on the EU market.
