EBRD and EU boost support to private sector in West Bank and Gaza
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the European Union (EU) have marked their five-year partnership in support of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and the private sector in the West Bank and Gaza with an event highlighting their achievements under the Advice for Small Businesses (ASB) programme.

Launched in the West Bank and Gaza in 2017, the EBRD business advisory programme aims to boost the Palestinian private sector competitiveness and innovation, as well as to increase access to finance for MSMEs. The programme is co-financed by the EU and has supported 89 advisory projects to date, connecting businesses with local consultants and international advisers, enabling them to enhance their productivity, increase turnover and export to new markets.
