Trade Ready

The EBRD’s new trade support initiative, Trade Ready, provides SMEs with advice in a wide range of areas to make them more competitive, as well as offering training in trade finance and networking opportunities to help them engage in more and better export and import activities. Trade Ready also works with local banks, through the EBRD’s Trade Facilitation Programme, to help them tailor and expand their trade finance products to the needs of SMEs, diversifying their trade finance portfolio in the process.
