Ceipiemonte is partner of East Invest, a regional investment and trade facilitation project for the economic development of the Eastern Neighbourhood region, launched in the framework of the European Eastern Partnership initiative.
The project aims to offer business support to organisations and SMEs from the 6 Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, Ukraine), who have potential for developing mutual cooperation and investment relations with the European Union.
Its main objectives are:
to promote and facilitate investment and economic cooperation at large between the EU and Eastern Partnership countries, and also between the 6 target countries
to create the “East Alliance”, mobilising business organisations from both sides to engage in a sustainable partnership and dialogue both within the private sector and towards the public authorities
to develop concrete activities that will generate immediate results for SMEs in the region.
East Invest is a European Commission initiative, managed by EUROCHAMBRES, implemented by the East Alliance. This project is funded by the European Union. It runs from November 2010 till April 2014, and has a total budget of 8 750 000 €.
The project East Invest is managed by the East Alliance, consisting of 84 partners from the EU, Turkey and Eastern Partnership countries and led by EUROCHAMBRES.
EUROCHAMBRES strongly believes in the importance of building an East Invest network. Members of the East Alliance are not simply the ‘beneficiaries’ of the programme, but they are also the ‘actors’ delivering an important part of the activities, based on capacity and interest.
This network of experienced partners will:
guarantee a smooth and immediate implementation of the programme,
offer a balanced geographical coverage, and
provide for a mix of Chambers of Commerce and other business support organisations.
