Abidjan, March 2020. On 11 and 12 March 2020, Jaume Guardans, the CEO of Born in Commerce, was scheduled to attend the Business Opportunity Seminar organized by the African Development Bank in Abidjan, ivory Coast. Unfortunately, due to the health emergency, the event was cancelled.
However, we decided to make the trip anyway
to meet with the most relevant actors in the country and the region with the collaboration of the Abidjan office of ICEX Spain Export and Investments: the French Development Agency (AFD), la Ivorian Civil Society Convention (CSCI), the European Union Delegation to Ivory Coast, and the Ministry of African Integration and Ivorians Abroad.
The short visit to the country was very fruitful and the Born in Commerce team was able to establish good relations with all the actors Jaume Guardans met and close collaboration agreements with some of them.
