Effective immediately, the Swiss Import Promotion Program (SIPPO) that is financed by SECO to promote imports from developing and emerging countries will be implemented by the Swisscontact Foundation. With a changed project approach in the partner countries, long-term stable export structures will be strengthened.
Over the last few years, the IPD has worked closely with the previous program which was implemented by Switzerland Global Enterprise. Under the new mandate of Swisscontact, the IPD will also use synergies through close cooperation with SIPPO to provide an extensive range of services for German importers and exporters in the IPD partner countries. First joint activities are already planned.
