The USAID Competitive Economy Program (CEP), implemented by Chemonics International, is seeking grant applications for the implementation of activities to support the participation of Ukrainian businesses in international trade events, including overseas trade missions and visits to, and participation in, exhibitions, trade shows, conferences, conventions, business to business (B2B) meetings, and other business matchmaking events, as well as international trade events in Ukraine (e.g. incoming buyers missions, business conferences, innovation competitions, etc.). Participation of Ukrainian businesses in these activities will enable and facilitate the recovery and re-activation of export sales, and investment attraction, increase access to foreign markets, investors, and funding, and help identify new business opportunities to utilize. These efforts will help Ukrainian businesses to overcome disruptions caused by the war, ensure business continuity and resilience, as well as help SMEs to sustain business activities, grow globally, and ultimately support Ukraine’s economy.
