About Training e-Session
Africa is up and coming – is your company ready to take advantage of the huge opportunities presented in virtually every sector of its economy?
Many African countries have been experiencing strong growth and are investing heavily in acutely needed social and physical infrastructure, yet, much of Africa continues to be plagued by high levels of corruption and are identified as high-risk jurisdictions.
Companies looking to pursue opportunities on the continent need to have a clear-sighted understanding of the diversity of the legal, cultural, social, political and risk environments that each region and country presents.
This session will explore the nature of the risks at play and lessons learned from companies that have successfully (and sometimes less successfully) invested in Africa.
In this e-session, a Canadian Trade Commissioner, Ryan Ward also spoke on anti-corruption/governance considerations for African countries. The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service provides services to Canadian companies around the world, and Canada’s trade commissioners are trained to provide support on corporate social responsibility (CSR)-related issues as an integral part of providing service excellence to Canadian client companies. Services from the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service are offered free of charge to Canadian companies and organizations.
