MACEDONIAN WINES PROMOTED IN GERMANY
Eleven wineries from Macedonia, supported by USAID's AgBiz program, are promoted at international fair "ProWein 2010", held March 21-23 in Dusseldorf.
The objective is for companies to increase competitiveness and productivity, thus successfully and sustainably penetrating new markets for agriculture products of added value.
Wineries "Tikves", "Skovin", "Dalvina", "Ezimit", "Imako Vino", "File", "Vardarska Dolina", "Stobi", "Popova Kula", "Lozar" and "Bovin" present their products at a 120m2 national stand within the Dusseldorf fair.
"ProWein" is the only fair for wine and alcohol beverages in the world. Following last year's fair, four Macedonian wineries that took part managed to export products to Belgium, Poland, Germany and the Netherlands.
The AgBiz program has thus far provided support to 179 companies of the agriculture sector in the improvement of their exporting competitiveness.
