The European Union (EU) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) are joining forces to strengthen growth opportunities for Tunisian small businesses, with a new export programme called Insadder.

The initiative aims to boost the export potential of local enterprises by helping them to penetrate and compete successfully on external markets. Insadder will have a budget of €7.25 million financed by the EU and implemented by the EBRD over a five-year period.

Insadder aims to improve the competitiveness, productivity and export capacities of Tunisian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), helping them grow internationally and access new markets. It will support trade, create opportunities for Tunisian companies and promote their exports to the EU and the wider world.

The EU and EBRD have so far jointly supported over 1,400 Tunisian companies, trained 600 women business leaders and more than 400 local consultants, supported around 50 Tunisian start-ups and accompanied 10 professional associations, to build a more prosperous Tunisia.
