In recent years, agricultural exports to developed country markets have emerged as a potential major source of export growth for Rwanda. In this context, the specialized export quality infrastructures will be upgraded so as to improve quality standards of export commodities. As the capacity to meet market standards grows, the greater market shares will be captured. The “Technical assistance to support National Agricultural Export Development Board (NAEB)'s capacity to upgrade the specialised export quality infrastructures » includes assisting in production of required modules to fill the skill gaps identified. It aims to ensure standardisation and harmonisation with other quality standards with regards to market requirement. The current main export markets requirement together with other potential markets will be considered (whether regional, European Union, United States and Asian). One of the main focuses of the project is to assist NAEB in the accreditation of labs according to the International Standard (ISO/IEC 17025:2005).
