The EU has launched the Access2Markets online portal to help small and medium-sized firms trade beyond the EU’s borders and reap the benefits of EU trade deals.
The new portal responds to requests from stakeholders to better explain trade agreements and help companies ensure their products are eligible for duty discounts. It will serve both companies that already trade internationally and those that are only starting to explore opportunities in foreign markets.
“I am happy to announce the EU Access2Market portal, which provides clear and comprehensive information about EU market access rules. I hope Georgian companies will find this a helpful tool in order to take better advantage of their privileged access to the EU single market of over 450 million consumers, through the EU-Georgia free trade agreement – the DCFTA.” stated EU Ambassador Carl Hartzell.
Access2Markets provides businesses with tailored information for their product. In just a few clicks, they can look up tariffs, taxes, rules of origin, product requirements, customs procedures, trade barriers and trade flow statistics. The portal also provides practical information on EU trade agreements, step-by-step guides, tutorials, video testimonials, and much more.
