A three-year project of the European Union supporting small and medium-sized enterprises in the region, began with the signing of an Agreement between the European Commission and the Western Balkans Chamber Investment Forum (WB6 CIF) in Tirana on December 19, 2019.
Small and medium-sized companies from all six Western Balkan economies will have concrete support in improving production and export capacities and increasing the placement of goods and services on the regional and world markets.
Within the EU project “EU support to WB6 CIF”, through the WB6 CIF Regional Supplier Development Program whose main goal is to support the establishment of a Common Regional Market, an accessible platform “Market Access & Market Intelligence Database” was set up.
The free online platform offers various services, information and support in modern business.
In order to support intraregional and international trade and export of Western Balkans companies, WB6 CIF has developed a unique digital tool – Market Access database consisted of 4 modules with different functions and roles.
- Supply chain
- Business to Business
- Event Management
- Supply and Demand
Supply Chain Module aims to connect the WB6 companies which are interested in participating in global and regional supply chains with multinational corporations (MNC) looking for new suppliers from the Western Balkans region.
This online module provides initial business-to-business support by enabling supply chain interactions of WB6 companies with potential multinational corporations and other strategic partners, allowing them to showcase their products and/or services.
Business to Business
B2B module is used as a place where WB6 companies can find potential partners, promote their goods and/or services and find appropriate partner(s) from the region.

Event management module provides possibility to companies to participate in relevant/interesting events organized by WB6 chambers of economy and to prepare for active participation, acquire knowledge, be informed in a timely manner and be informed about business events.
Within this module companies have opportunity to organize meeting with potential partners and establish cooperation. In order to make it easier to navigate and organize, a mobile application is available, too.
