Project Update: Dutch Export Academy Closing Ceremony 

Yesterday, 10th May, 2023, the closing ceremony for the fourth edition of the Dutch Export Academy (DEA) was held at Airport West Hotel in Accra.

In attendance were representative from the Netherlands embassy, GNBCC and  MDF West Africa staff members, as well as the participants from the training and export study trip.

The program was moderated by project manager, Tracy Abbey Mensah, with a welcome address from Tjalling Wiarda, General Manager of GNBCC, followed by an address by Julia Appiah from MDF West Africa, and then Maame Awinador-Kanyirige, who is the Trade and Business Officer at the Netherlands' embassy.

The participants were encouraged to approach their businesses with a different mindset that will set them apart from other entrepreneurs and also to implement the learnings and networks they gained through the training in Ghana and also the export study trip.

Some participants were also selected to share their experiences and give feedback and shortcomings for the program in order to make the future ones even better.

All these feedbacks, together with a much more detailed one that has been submitted by the participants will be taken note of for future editions.

The program ended with the awards of certificates to the participating companies for going through the full program.
