"CBI contributes to sustainable economic development in developing countries through the expansion of exports from these countries."
We have a solid network of international stakeholders. Our contribution consists of sustainable strengthening of the competitive capacity of SME exporters and producers in developing countries, focusing primarily on European markets.
We achieve this by offering an integrated approach, which is applicable to companies, business support organisations and governmental authorities. Our core competence is threefold: advice, counselling and knowledge management.
CBI (Centre for the Promotion of Imports from developing countries) is an Agency of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. Established in 1971 in order to support producers / exporters to get a foothold on the market in the Netherlands, support to Business Support Organisations in improving their capabilities and to act as a Matchmaker between suppliers and buyers. In 1991 the activities were expanded to EU and since 1998 it has become an Agency.
