EU4Business: Connecting Companie is a project managed by Eurochambres and funded under the EU4Business initiative of the European Union. The EU4BCC project is being developed in the framework of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) in order to deepen and strengthen relations between the European Union (EU), its Member States and its six Eastern neighbours (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine). EU4Business is an umbrella initiative that covers all EU activities supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the EaP countries. The EU4BCC project aims to support sustainable economic development and job creation in the EaP countries by helping SMEs to grow – especially by promoting increased trade, encouraging inward investment and fostering business links with companies in the EU. The project includes such activities like international B2B events, Twinnings and Study visits.
Kaunas Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Crafts, together with partners in EU and EAP, implemented 12 international projects in textile sector that allowed SME‘s and BSO‘s from EaP countries to be more international and achieve international partnerships with EU countries.
