By way of company visits Import Promotion Desk (IPD) identified in close collaboration with a value chain project of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Nepalese producers of medicinal and aromatic plants with export potential. Due to lack of certificates and documentation direct access to the German market has been denied to many Nepalese companies; they are forced to sell their products to intermediaries (especially from India) which then export the products to the EU.

To resolve this problem, IPD in cooperation with GIZ, is closing different gaps to gradually empower the Nepalese suppliers to sell without intermediate stages to the European market. One of the activities took place in February 2015 + 2016 through the participation of selected exporters as exhibitors at Biofach trade fair in Nürnberg.
