The Aceba Project
In the World
The ACEBA project is an export-oriented competitiveness and economic growth program within the USAID/Afghanistan portfolio.
Many Afghan firms lack the competitive strength to maintain commercial viability in a distortion-free market, let alone to capture opportunities in export markets. The flagship economic growth project in USAID/Afghanistan’s portfolio, the Afghanistan Competitiveness of Export-Oriented Businesses Activity (ACEBA) project works to increase the competitiveness of export-oriented businesses, through a combination of key value chain support activities and export acceleration facilities designed to promote sustainable nationwide economic growth.
The actions ACEBA is carrying out in Afghanistan are resulting in a whole strategic sector of the Afghan industry that involves thousands of people, primarily women, benefiting from a project that, in the short-medium term, plans to give visibility to a sector that can supply a real culinary jewel to the international markets.
