On March 29th, 2019, Kosovo wood processing companies Ciao Berto, Elnor, Candeo, Albed and Shehu and the Association of Wood Processors of Kosovo went on a three-day trade mission to Belgium. Representatives from these companies visited five showrooms and met with 16 Belgian and Albanian Diaspora businesses in various cities in Belgium. The mission was very productive, with all five companies creating business contacts and initiating potential deals. As a result of this activity, Kosovo businesses from the wood processing sector will have better access to the Belgium and larger European markets. The visit was organized and funded by EMPOWER Private Sector in partnership with Sida and Embassy of the Republic of Kosovo in Belgium.
