    The MARKUP partner states window - Burundi complements the interventions provided under the regional window and sets a focus on strengthening the National Quality Infrastructure. It is important for Burundi to have a competent and internationally recognized quality infrastructure system in order to support compliance with sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures and technical regulations. Accordingly, the overall objective "to contribute to economic development of Burundi" and the specific objective to "improve market access to EU and EAC region for Burundi agro-industrial and horticultural sectors" shall be achieved through three expected results of project activities. The results are: 1) National Quality Infrastructure framework, inspection and certification services strengthened, 2) Laboratory testing capacities for coffee/tea improved and 3) Quality related extension services strengthened.
