European Union

English

Botswana companies can export information to this lucrative market through the  European Commission: Trade Export Help Desk. The export help desk is an online service provided by the European Commission to facilitate market access in particular for developing countries to the European Union.

Despite these efforts and even a largely tariff and quota free access for most developing countries, some technical and very specific requirements remain for exporters to fully benefit from the export opportunities provided. Most of these can be overcome when the information on how to access the EU market is more widely available.

To access the EU Help desk: www.exporthelp.europa.eu. Also see more under Bilateral Agreements.
