Empowering the African Private Sector network to strengthen the international competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
The overall aim of this project is to (1) Continue to activate the African Network of SME development experts and intermediary organizations (IOs) as initiated in 2010 through the CIDA funded project (Creation of the first Pan-Africa trainers and advisers’ network for African exporters and their supporting IOs) and (2) Strengthen the capacities of IOs to act as national focal points to assist exporting SMEs to become more competitive. The programme will provide skills, tools, and know-how to diagnose and solve the problems facing enterprise managers. It will focus specifically on packaging, quality and supply chain management, working closely with existing IOs known to ITC. The programme will focus on delegation of programme delivery and ownership and increase the reliance on network members.
