  • trade-related programmes of ACP business associations (chambers of commerce, Farmers’ associations, confederation of industries, producers’ associations, professional associations, etc.) in the area of trade;
  • the networking activities of trade-related think-tanks and similar organisations.

A maximum budget of 14.4 mio EUR is available for grants sizing between 1 and 3 mio EUR. Costsharing of at least 20% is required.
