vThe session is part of the project “Improving Private Sector Competitiveness”, with a budget of 36 million USD funded by USAID.

The five-year project, which started in 2021, focuses on building business management capacity and strategies for small and growing businesses (SGBs); improving productivity and trading performance via promoting innovation and application of technologies; improving business environment to create favourable conditions for enterprises and overall economic growth; and strengthening business-to-business and interagency linkages.

It aims at providing technical and financial assistance to 5,000 SGBs to improve their performance; supporting 240 SGBs to successfully participate in domestic, regional and international markets; and offering overall or special support packages to 60 pioneer businesses to create products with added value.
