Export Promotion to EU Markets

The policy study “Opportunities for Syrian fruit and vegetable exports in the EU market” presents the main results of a research study undertaken by the National Agricultural Policy Centre, aiming at presenting detailed information on the penetration of Syrian exports of fruit and vegetables in the EU markets. The study develops a line of research initiated by a previous study carried out under the Project GCP/SYR/006/ITA – Phase I, which examined the impact of the Association Agreement (AA) between Syria and the EU.

Syrian interests for improving export performance of fruits and vegetables to the EU markets are based on: (i) the relative specialisation of Syrian exports on fresh vegetables (28% of total agricultural export value in 1999), and fresh fruits (15%); (ii) the signature of the AA, which will open new and more stable opportunities for Syrian exports; (iii) the dynamism of the EU fruit and vegetable market for some products of export interest for Syria (eg. cherries, table grapes, garlic, onions, tomatoes and potatoes); and (iv) the over-specialisation of Syrian exports on GAFTA countries, which account for over 90 per cent of Syrian horticultural exports.
