Success Stories, Results and Impact

  • The “Promoting Intra-regional Trade in Eastern Africa Project” is an initiative financed by the Government of Finland and implemented from 2014 to 2016 in Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia. With a budget of $5’5 million the project’s aim was to address:
    • Value chain weaknesses that hinder export competitiveness of producers and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in selected agro-value chains (mango, honey, spices and chilli);
    • Deficiencies of trade & investment support institutions (TISIs) in providing the required support to enable SMEs to upgrade their competitiveness and successfully engage in export development.

    PROJECT PARTNERS include: The Kenya Export Promotion Council (EPC), the Horticultural Crops Directorate (HCD) (formerly HCDA), the Kenya Institute of Supplies Management (KISM), the Association of Mango Growers (AMAGRO), the Tanzania Forestry Services (TFS), the Tanzania Honey Council (THC), the Small Industries Development Organization (SIDO), the Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS) and TanTrade. In Zambia: Zambia Development Agency (ZDA), Zambia Bureau of Standards, Agri-business Forum and Zambia Honey Council.
