The POS foundation was in Abidjan to exhibit on the themes of cross-border trade

On Friday March 18, 2022, the POS Foundation in partnership with the Ghana International Trade Commission,
organized in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Côte d'Ivoire, as well as the Bordeless
Alliance a consultation workshop on the theme of promoting small-scale cross-border trade, the rule of law and the
use of technical tools in West Africa with the support of the deutsche gesellshchaft für internationale
zusammenarbeit gmgh (GIZ).

This meeting disguised as a workshop will make it possible to take stock and understand the scope of cross-border
trade, existing structures, initiatives, identify common challenges and its relevance for the project in order to foster
a solid partnership in the consolidation of efforts towards the promotion of free trade in Africa within the framework
of the rule of law and the use of technical tools.

In addition, this will help to identify other actors, other relevant institutions within the State and also to organize a
group discussion.

“This workshop is the result of our collaboration with the CCI-CI, POS Foundation based in Accra and the logistical
support of GIZ, which we thank very much.

I urge all participants to enrich the research results on the African Continental Free Trade Agreement and its effects
on cross-border trade and the prototype of the trade web portal that will be presented by our partner Mr. Jonathan
OSEI Owusu, Executive Director of POS Foundation. 

I remain hopeful that at the end of our exchanges, we will have added value to small-scale cross-border trade,
enriched the use of technology and strengthened the development of a consolidated web portal. 

In this context, this workshop will surely be a vector that will make the Africa of tomorrow a real FTACAF, thus
strengthening an Africa strong in its diversity and unified" said Lago Jonas, president of the national committee
alliance Bordeless Côte d'Ivoire, adviser in charge of public relations and scanning system facilitation.
