CBI invites several professionals to participate in our tender for the upcoming 5-year CBI programmes in the Fresh Fruit & Vegetables sector in Jordan & Lebanon, and the Apparel sector in Jordan.

The aim of CBI is to increase the competitiveness of SME producers and exporters in developing countries through long term training programmes and export development coaching. CBI connects SMEs in developing countries to new export markets and this way contributes to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals #8 Decent work and economic growth, #12 Responsible consumption and production, and #17 Partnerships for the goals.

CBI programmes are so-called “Integrated Programmes”. The programmes not only directly support potential exporters through individual Business Export Coaching but also focus on improving conditions in the Export Enabling Environment by supporting Sector- and Business Support Organizations.
