Businesses who would like to learn how to export to international markets, or improve their performance, can find information and training opportunities at the following places:

The EDP provides various development-focused services, including:

  • Vocational training focusing on international trade.
  • Developing export competence within local small- and medium-sized companies.
  • Providing access to expertise, knowledge and networks that businesses need to grow internationally.
  • Offering standardised training modules on company practice and export coaching.
  • Providing up-to-date market- and sector-related information to exporters.
  • Mentoring export-ready companies to strengthen their export activities.
  • Offering international mentoring to help businesses meet specific needs.
  • Facilitating outward missions to expose emerging exporters to foreign markets.

The EDP also enables emerging exporters to identify their needs, overcome barriers and constraints to accessing global business opportunities and to grow their exports.
