On 4 July, the EU4Business initiative launched a new project in Armenia aimed at

The project ‘Eastern Partnership: Ready to Trade - an EU4Business initiative’
formally started in March 2018 with an SME survey from the agro-processing
sector, conducted in cooperation with the Small and Medium Entrepreneurship

vegetables, dried fruit and vegetables, and herbal tea value chains. The survey
results show that 25% of surveyed companies are already exporting to the EU and
32% have expressed interest in entering the EU market.
A value chain analysis was also conducted for the selected product groups, the
results of which were presented and discussed during the event.
