In addition to the theoretical part, the participants also performed exercises that included real cases from practice.

“The European Union, and in particular the Ready4Trade project, is focusing on women-led businesses and it is encouraging that we are seeing an increase in the number of women entrepreneurs in Turkmenistan. The products they produce are unique, colorful, good quality and ready for export. Some of the women business owners have already participated in Ready4Trade’s export management and e-commerce training initiatives and we are already seeing great results such as better export performance and better online sales.”
