Tailored e-commerce coaching: Applications open for Ukrainian firms

The International Trade Centre (ITC) and EU4Digital Facility are partnering to provide e-commerce training to an additional 11 Ukrainian companies.

Since the beginning of the conflict, 6.9 million in-country Ukrainians have been displaced, indicating the need to find new income and jobs. Ukraine’s Ministry of Economy has estimated that the economy downsized to 30% of pre-conflict levels, with digital work and online marketplaces providing the necessary relief for the Ukrainian population and building the economy’s resilience.

The offered training is part of ITC’s Japan-funded project, which assists internally displaced populations and businesses in digital skills and e-commerce, and will be delivered through the eCommerce consultations centre of EU4Digital that has already supported Ukrainian firms in reaching EU market places this year.

Ukrainian firms based in Ukraine can now apply for the e-commerce training here.

The selected companies will receive coaching on best practices and five hours of private consultations set between August and December 2023, to create opportunities for entering EU-based marketplaces.
