SIPPO - Consultant for Trade Promotion Capacity Evaluation
The Swiss Import Promotion Programme (SIPPO) is a well-established mandate of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) within the framework of its economic development cooperation. Since 2017, SIPPO is carried out by Swisscontact, a business-oriented Swiss foundation for international development cooperation. Swisscontact collaborates with sub-contracting partners (BHP Brugger & Partner, HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation) and cooperation partners (IPD, CBI, TRIC) to strengthen its worldwide capacity development approach.
SIPPO promotes sustainable and inclusive trade thereby building on its core values respect, partnership-based cooperation, and integrity as established by its code of conduct. The overall objective is to integrate developing and transition countries into world trade. Targeted export promotion services delivered through Business Support Organizations (BSOs) strengthen the competitive position and facilitate market access and exports of companies in partner countries to Switzerland, the EU, and regional markets.
In order to support the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (VIETRADE) to build capacity, SIPPO is recruiting a consultant to screen the current VIETRADE monitoring system and provide inputs to build up the set of indicators and evaluation methodology (see the attached Terms of Reference).
