Ecuador: Promoting new non-traditional exports (NEXT Ecuador)
The main aim of the "Ecuador: Promoting new non-traditional exports (NEXT Ecuador)" project is to increase and consolidate non-traditional fruit export from Ecuadorian associations and small producers. This four-year project, funded by the European Union and financed under the Development Cooperation Instrument, will enhance the competitiveness of export supply by increasing productivity and certified produce. The project will likewise develop organizational capacities by creating sustainable business alliances in the international market, particularly in the European Union. Finally, the project supports institutions, and will provide the organizations with agricultural technical assistance, access to productive assets, support to obtain certifications, training in standards' compliance, and business capacities and skills to fostering sustainable trade.
