PROPEA program 2023 – Call for Proposals

Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic announces a call for providers for the PROPEA program for 2023. With the help of PROPEA, accredited expert entities operating abroad (with the support of the Czech Embassy in the country) provide services of economic diplomacy to Czech companies which are already operating in the territory or are preparing to enter the market. The current call for proposals ends on September 26, 2022.

PROPEA projects are a shift from supporting one-off business operations of Czech companies to strengthening their permanent presence abroad. The program aims to boost Czech firms that focus not only on exports, but also have an investment nature. Furthermore, PROPEA projects want to reduce the risks associated with entering demanding foreign markets and enhance the capacity of the Czech Republic to support a more permanent presence of companies on foreign markets.

Within the scope of the PROPEA program accredited expert entities operating abroad, with the support of the Embassy in the particular territory, can offer Czech companies that are already operating in the territory or are preparing to enter the target foreign market expert pro-export services:

· processing of a business plan for market entry or investment

· processing of legal, tax, financial, and legislative analyses

· launching of products on the market (assistance in negotiations with financial institutions, support in opening an account and securing financing, establishing a company, etc.)

· securing licenses, certifications, product registrations, and trademarks

· securing and verifying documentation for import/export and logistics

· creation and coordination of supplier and partner networks

· securing of promotional, marketing and PR services

· support during start of production/start-up assistance for companies from the service sector

· utilisation of technical facilities.

Further details on the project can be found on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic – information on PROPEA. The maximum financial support for one PROPEA project implemented within one territory is 500,000 CZK for a calendar year.

Those interested in executing the project in Egypt in 2023 (i.e. possible providers of pro-export services for Czech companies in Egypt) can consult their ideas and submit their proposals to the Economic department of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Egypt- contact: Ludmila Leškovská, Economic and Trade Counsellor, commerce_cairo@mzv.cz.
