Thanks to the financial support of the European Union, in partnership with UEMOA and ITC, the regional network of Trade Promotions Organizations  met in Dakar, under the auspices of the Ministry of Trade.

UEMOA’s TPO Network will be financed by the EU with two billion FCfa over the next eight months. This partnership will enable the intra and inter-regional exchanges for a fast and sustainable inclusion of West Africa in the global economy.

According to Imamo Ben Mohamed, ITC representative, the creation of the regional network will foster resources to improve support services to SMEs and strengthen the efforts of the UEMOA Commission to implement and promote development programmes.

The UEMOA commission and the International Trade Centre also organized a  two-day workshop for staff of TPOs’,  focusing on information collection and digitalization, to be able to eventually update the regional online trade information portal.
