USAID COMPETITIVE ECONOMY PROGRAM (CEP) is a $42 million activity to advance a strong, diverse, and open Ukrainian economy by supporting SMEs and business startups to become more competitive in domestic and international markets. CEP’s principal objectives are to foster a better business enabling environment, provide support for competitive industries and firms, and boost Ukraine’s exports and trade. CEP supports the development of select industries that have the potential to grow rapidly, increase revenue, and generate investment and jobs in an environmentally sustainable way. CEP is focused on several key sectors — information technology (IT), furniture and wood processing, tourism, and film industry.
A key CEP approach to fostering businesses in competitive sectors is to create opportunities to enhance business and export knowledge and skills and assure access to finance. To support trade, CEP also strengthens Ukraine’s participation in and compliance with World Trade Organization (WTO) rules and requirements.
