The Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Ghana and in Tunisia in bridging the business gap between these two countries have developed a new platform for the dissemination and interaction of business-related information. The concept developed and conceptualized by the two Chambers is known as The Intra-African Desk. The Intra-African Desk aims at providing information for people who want to set up businesses or connect with partners in Tunisia and Ghana.
Supply Chain Due Diligence Project
The Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Ghana together with the Global Shea Alliance (GSA) is collaborating on a project focused on training farmers, companies, and cooperatives in the shea value chain on the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act which takes effect from 1st January 2023. The Supply Chain Act in Germany imposes significant obligations on companies that source their products and services through supply chains, to comply with human rights and environmental standards and exposes them to potentially serious liability. This will also affect suppliers and partners in developing and emerging countries like Ghana.
