  • Description

    A seminar of business studies teachers opened in the Ivory Coast capital of Abidjan on Tuesday (27 July) with a call to the French-speaking African countries to improve their international trade.

    SYNOPSIS: The seminar was organised by the Ivory Coast Centre for International Trade (CI) and financed by the Canadian government. Delegates from 12 African countries are attending the seminar including those from Senegal, Zaire, Togo, Mauritania, Madagascar, Algeria, Tunisia, Upper Volta, Mauritius and the host nation, Ivory Coast. There are also observers from the CCI and Canada.

    The seminar took place at the African and Mauritian Centre for Management Improvement (CAMPC) and representatives of the centre spoke to delegates about the importance of re-training for those people involved in international trade and business. In that way, managers could be aware of current development and put them to the fullest use when dealing with foreign companies. Most of the delegates attending the seminar are university professors or from business and marketing centres.

    Monsieur Lambert Amon Tanoh, Director-General of the Ivory Coast Centre for Foreign Trade (CICE) told the delegates that it was time for the exporters of the French-speaking African countries to become experts in the world of international trade. He called on the teachers of business studies to apply the same criteria for success as those used by the major companies of the world. The seminar continues until 13 August.
