If you are a producer in an ACP country and you want to export your products to the EU you might want to know that there exists a free online service from the European Commission- The Export Helpdesk- which can give you valuable information on:
- which are the requirements applying in EU for your product
- the maximum residual levels of pesticides
- traceability
- what should be on the label
- how to market the coffee.
- import tariffs for coffee, and the preferential arrangement applying
- trade flows (ex: which countries in Europe are buying already your product)
- authorities and international organizations in trade operations and trade promotion

Watch the CTA Brussels video with Ines Escudero Sanchez, Export Helpdesk coordinator to find out more about the this service.

UK MPs argue that the 40% of the official development assistance (ODA) budget for 2012, which is channeled through international organizations as the World Bank and the EU, might not have the expected results, given the lack of effectiveness of the institutions in allocating the money.
