Meet Gulnara, Mane, Lyudmila, Elguja, Andriy, Petr and others, all beneficiaries of EU4Business finance and expertise, as they tell how EU support has transformed their business. A photo exhibition of EU4Business success stories, showing how entrepreneurs are being supported across all six EaP countries by a range of our financial and advisory projects, implemented by 20 partners of the EU4Business initiative.

The first annual report of EU4Business, analysing the dynamics and achievements of the initiative over the period 2016-2017, as well as total consolidated figures since the initiative was launched in 2009. The report also outlines a way forward that is based on wide consultations with EU4Business stakeholders.

“It’s a great opportunity to bring together the different stakeholders, to have a common idea about what is happening and to think also about the challenges that everybody is facing and how EU4Business can move forward.” 
In the spring of 2018, national round tables were held in each of the six Eastern Partnership countries, bringing together key EU4Business stakeholders – EU Delegations, IFIs, national SME agencies and Ministries of Economy, commercial banks, business associations, key implementers and any other related parties. The conclusions – included in the EU4Business Annual Report – offer a unique perspective following a detailed joint consideration of all the EU4Business pillars and initiatives.
