Export Assistance by The Swedish Chambers

The Swedish Chambers offer contacts, knowledge and capacity to exporters from developing countries within the Trade Promotion Programme. The programme is carried out in cooperation with SIDA (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency). It focuses on business contacts, market information, training and extended contacts in order to promote export from developing countries. Trade is an important tool for enhancing economic growth and reducing poverty and is essential for a sustainable global development. An equal international trade helps poor people and countries to benefit from the global market.

The economic, social and environmental consequences of international development are in focus within the Swedish policy for global development. In order to be able to participate in the international trade exporters from developing countries need contacts, knowledge and capacity. Exporters from thirty countries including Kenya are eligible for support from the Chambers.
