To successfully compete in international markets is no small matter. Exporting companies must not only produce products that will win the interest of international buyers, they must master the ways of manufacturing it to specifications, using appropriate packaging and affixing proper labels, shipping it safely and securely and delivering it on time and in the most cost-effect fashion. The Trade Hub’s technical experts have decades of experience combined in successfully managing exporting companies in six non-traditional sectors: apparel, home décor & fashion accessories, shea, cashew, fish & seafood and specialty foods. From linking companies to buyers at international trade shows to improving the design and quality of their products, Trade Hub experts help West Africa’s exporters successfully compete.
Helping exporting companies across West Africa compete successfully in international markets is the Trade Hub’s primary mission. When exporting companies’ products win buyers, attract investment and gain market, new jobs and higher incomes are the result. These jobs and incomes sustain the lives of thousands of people directly and impact the lives of hundreds of thousands of people indirectly.
