Final Evaluation of the Trade Development & Market Enhancement Programme


Systematic and timely evaluation of the Trade Development & Market Enhancement Programmes and activities is an established priority of the European Commission. The focus of evaluations is on the assessment of achievements, the quality and the results of Actions in the context of an evolving cooperation policy with an increasing emphasis on result-oriented approaches and the contribution towards the implementation of the SDGs.

From this perspective, evaluations should look for evidence of why, whether or how these results are linked to the EU intervention and seek to identify the factors driving or hindering progress.

Evaluations should provide an understanding of the cause and effect links between: inputs and activities, and outputs, outcomes and impacts. Evaluations should serve accountability, decision making, learning and management purposes.

The main objectives of this evaluation are to provide the relevant services of the European Union, the interested stakeholder with:

  1. An overall independent assessment of the past performance of the Trade Development & Market Enhancement Programme, paying particular attention to its results measured against its expected objectives; and the reasons underpinning such results;
  2. Detailed recommendations in order to design future Actions on the basis of the key lessons learned and conclusions of this implementation.

In particular, this evaluation will serve to understand the performance of the Action, its enabling factors and those hampering a proper delivery of results as to feed the planning of future EU interventions and Actions in the same sector.
