Special programme Ukraine

IPD expanded its engagement in Ukraine and launched a special programme on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). We put Ukrainian suppliers in touch with European trading partners through targeted matchmaking measures.

10 years trade promotion

In 2012, IPD began its work. In the previous years IPD underwent four project phases and continuously developed its engagement. The number of project groups, partner countries, companies within the IPD programme, matchmaking activities, capacity-building measures and business deals steadily increased.

IPD hubs: roadmap now set

Here and there, there has been a return to something approaching normality in recent months. IPD accompanied its companies at international trade fairs. In addition, IPD experts were on the road on sourcing missions to visit the companies in the IPD programme on the ground again after a long gap. What is more, IPD was able to implement a further important project: IPD regional offices were set up in selected partner countries in the second half of 2021.
