The learning process is simplified by a specially created electronic platform of the QazTrade Academy.

 According to Johannes Baur, Head of the Cooperation Department of the EU Delegation to Kazakhstan, the main objective of the project is to help small export companies cope with global trade challenges.

"The goal of the program is to help small and medium-sized companies use their capabilities to cope with global challenges in international trade. It is nice to see that Kazakhstan occupies a key place in Central Asia in these processes. The fact that the country is mastering world and European standards in the field of trade, adapting its educational systems to rapidly changing conditions," Johannes Baur said.

Vice Minister of Trade and Integration of Kazakhstan, Kairat Torebayev, emphasizes that in our country much attention is paid to improving the competencies of entrepreneurs, and the main task is to stimulate industries with export potential.

According to the authors of the project, the training program will help domestic business to prepare for the export of their product, both in the region and around the world. The program is built on the principle of studying cases from the practice of other players successfully engaged in export. The manager, SME Trade Academy Sean Lake, believes that the effectiveness of such courses lies precisely in their practical and problem orientation.
