The Market Access Upgrade Programme (MARKUP; PN 18.2128.9-003.00) is an initiative of the East African Community (EAC) Secretariat, funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) under EU Delegation Agreement FED/2018/398-674.
MARKUP aims to increase exports of selected value chains, promote regional integration and access to the European market by addressing specific challenges that SMEs, Trade and Investment Support Institutions (TISIs) and policy-makers face. MARKUP targets coffee in all five beneficiary countries- Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. Other priority sectors are spices, avocadoes and other horticultural products and tea.
It is implemented by various agencies, including the International Trade Centre (ITC), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), UNIDO, Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) and other partners. GIZ has been tasked with the overall coordination of communication activities in this programme.
The obligation to establish a web site for MARKUP (www.eacmarkup.org) results from the EU Delegation Agreement, Description of the Action, paragraph 5.5.
