ABOUT EXPORT SMART
Export Smart is “The Export Community Platform” in Egypt that cohesively connects the Export Community together, creating growth opportunities and disseminating knowledge related to all Export Business Development activities, with the final objective of growing the Egyptian exports.
Export Smart's annual event is the one and only annual event where all Export related stakeholders meet, interact, discuss challenges, and explore opportunities. The idea of the event is to consolidate existing business relationships and nurture new ones in all exporting sectors through showcasing the diverse export related services. Export Smart is connecting exporters with service providers who would help them put their business growth on a faster track.
Our vision for Export Smart is to be the preferred Export Community Platform in the Middle East and Africa, a One Stop Shop that contributes to a sustainable export growth for SMEs from different sectors, while expanding into more territories locally and internationally, with a larger participation of different stakeholders.
Our mission is to support the enhancement of the trade enabling environment in Egypt and facilitate access to markets by gathering all the export community under one roof, connecting SMEs to business development service providers, government institutions and development agencies. We aspire to achieve this while growing the number of exporters as well as export service providers in the Egyptian market.

Trade Reform and Development in Egypt (TRADE) Activity is a five-year project (2021-2026) funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) that aims to increase Egypt’s international trade by boosting exports from small and medium enterprises (SMEs) by $225 million over the next five years. To achieve its objectives USAID TRADE partners with private sector stakeholders as well government agencies, including the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the National Food Safety Authority, to increase Egyptian exports in six sectors: engineering products, food processing, home textiles, ready-made garments, chemicals, and building materials. The project also helps to reduce trade and investment barriers and strengthens the trade support institutions, such as trade associations and Export Councils, that will enhance the export capacity of SMEs. The USAID TRADE – GoGlobal partnership contributes to the project’s sustainability efforts as GoGlobal aims to position itself as a major player and ongoing force connecting SME exporters with service providers.
