T4SD Small Traders Capacity Building Programme
Small businesses form the backbone of many economies in lower-income developing countries. Studies also show that small and medium enterprise (SME) development is closely linked with economic growth and job creation. Nevertheless, small and medium firms face higher barriers to financing, and suffer disproportionately from complex administrative procedures, a lack of trade and market access information (tariffs, trade flows, standards, etc.), training, and high transaction costs The objective of the T4SD small traders capacity building programme is to address some of these challenges. This programme will implement a multi-faceted training programme to improve the ability of small-scale producers in a group of least-developed countries (the programme LDCs) to meet importing countries’ market requirements in a sustainable manner.
