The purpose of this mission was to interact with key stakeholders (including government institutions and ECOWAS/UEMOA Commissions) on a possible strategy to be deployed to support efforts in upgrading, modernizing enterprises and introducing innovative practices in manufacturing production, especially for SMEs.
Among other issues discussed were the ongoing activities of both the regional and national WACOMP components.
