BRIDGING THE GAP - EMPOWERING BUSINESSES TO GO GLOBAL

OCTOBER 24TH-25TH, 2018

INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL - NAIROBI, KENYA

#OWITCONnairobi

BACKGROUND ON THE CAPACITY-BUILDING WORKSHOP:

OWIT-Nairobi members have identified the core constraints that impede women entrepreneurs from accessing new opportunities in foreign markets through trade. The capacity-building workshop is structured to address these challenges that hinder businesses from accessing the global trade arena:

  • Lack of access to credit and trade-related information
  • Limited capacity in terms of knowledge and skills
  • Limited participation and representation in trade policy-related positions

The capacity-building workshop will bridge the gap and focus on solutions to these challenges based on the experience of private-sector leaders from globally competitive enterprises and of public-sector policy makers who work to enable trade through market-opening efforts.
