Invest in Africa is a partnership working to create opportunities and make it easier to do business in the world’s fastest-growing continent
TRACE International, the world's leading anti-bribery standard setting organization, today announced the launch of a pilot outreach program in Ghana, being implemented jointly with the USAID Ghana Supply Chain Development Program and Invest in Africa, to provide small and medium-sized enterprises with anti-bribery training and an internationally recognized business and compliance credential.
It's been one year since Invest in Africa launched its online business platform, the African Partner Pool (APP). It's been quite a successful year with the number of registered suppliers increasing by 300% (250 to 1,000) as well as 6 new buyers on board, making it 16 in total.
The APP is becoming an important tool for both Ghanaian SMEs and large companies looking to do business with each other. Watch the APP's year in review.
