The program is designed to provide technical assistance to exporter companies.

The program will include three technical assistance components: Product Licensing / Certification, Branding / Product Packaging, Stimulating International Sales / Entering the International Trade Network.

The program includes nearly 10 target sectors, beverages (except for wine), clothing, leather and leather products, shoes, toys, ready-to-eat food production for pets, veterinary products, furniture manufacturing, jewelry and the production of items connected to it, and packaging materials.

Enterprise Georgia’s co-financing terms are following:

Licensing and Certification – below 10,000 EUR
Branding / Product Packaging – below 20,000 GEL
International Network Entry – below 10,000 EUR

The Export Assistance Program will be implemented in all regions of Georgia. Moreover, it will be administered as part of the integrated development program for pilot regions in Imereti, Kakheti, Guria, Racha-Lechkhumi, and Kvemo Kartli.

Applications must be submitted from April 7th to May 10th on the exporters’ platform – tradewithgeorgia.com.
