THE FAST TRACK
EXPORT SUPPORT PROGRAM TO THE US:
UNDP is piloting an acceleration project in Lebanon and Morocco to support companies in accessing the US market.
Up to 40 companies and cooperatives from both countries will benefit from transportation and logistics grants as well as marketing and market linkages support to help them enter and sell directly in the US market.
Brief about the Fast-Track Export Support (FTES) Project:
The COVID-19 crisis has disrupted global supply chains causing an increase in shipping and logistics costs rendering SMEs highly vulnerable to external shocks. This was compounded by long travel restrictions reducing opportunities for small companies to meet new buyers and forging new deals.
The project aims to address these increased vulnerabilities and support small enterprises and cooperatives from Lebanon and Morocco to have better and more efficient access to the US market. By accessing this highly promising and growing market with large Moroccan and Lebanese diaspora network, small enterprises and cooperatives in Lebanon and Morocco will be able to increase their sales as well as sustain and create jobs for their local communities.
