This workshop will feature a team of excellent industry experts and thought leaders who will be ensuring the following:
● Sensitization of the operating protocols of the AfCFTA agreement;
● The basic implementation process of the AfCFTA to their business;
● A deeper understanding of the cognitive and intellectual requirements for the modern businesswoman
● Networking with industry contemporaries and forming strong small focus support groups to gain united fronts for the coming tides.
As an attendee, there will be access to further opportunities to upscale businesses, connect with the right network to achieve business growth, focus groups, and many more.
