Read about what we have achieved so far in our partner countries, what we are currently working on, and how companies in the European import economy are benefiting from our work in our biannual IPD UPDATE report.

Issue 2 // 2022

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.

Issue 02 // 2021

Expansion of the IPD services

In July 2021, IPD entered its fourth project phase. We will expand our offer and include two new partner countries - Morocco and Uzbekistan - in our program. In addition, IPD is opening regional offices in selected partner countries with immediate effect in order to further expand our work on the ground and, above all, our cooperation with export promotion organizations.
