Transition facility: insights into users 2012-2015
A descriptive analysis of de demography and trade behaviour of users of the instrument “Transition Facility” in the period 2012-2015.
The ministry of Foreign Affairs offers a wide range of instruments aimed at improving trade with developing countries. One of these instruments is the Transition Facility programme. As part of an ongoing broader assessment of the effectivity of the programme, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency asked Statistics Netherlands to provide a descriptive analysis of the users of the TF and their international activities. The analysis is based on a sample of participants who applied to part in trade missions financed by the programme and/or submitted a proposal to benefit from a subsidy for Demonstration projects, Feasibility studies and Knowledge Building programme (DHK).
