The Federation of National Associations of Women Entrepreneurs of the member countries of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMFWB), of which the National Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs (CNFCE) is an active member, will organise from October 12 to 14, 2021, in Tunis, a training course for women project holders.
As part of the Regional Programme for Business Competitiveness and Access to Markets (RECAMP), this training aims to help women entrepreneurs to overcome the difficulties they face, commercial, socio-cultural, or other.
The aim is to strengthen women’s businesses in the member countries of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), the CNFCE noted in a statement issued Friday.
Most of these women entrepreneurs do not have the necessary skills to develop and grow their businesses. Thus, they must improve their technical, entrepreneurial and managerial skills, to be competitive on local and international markets in general, but especially the markets of the COMESA zone.
This training will contribute to strengthening regional economic integration in the COMESA zone, by improving the competitivenesś of the private sector and the enterprises managed by women.
It aims, also, to increase private sector participation in regional and global value chains in a sustainable manner.
The Federation of National Associations of Women Entrepreneurs of COMESA (FEMCOM/COMFWB) is a COMESA institution with headquarters in Lilongwe, Malawi. FEMCOM/COMFWB was established by COMESA in recognition of the fact that regional economic integration cannot be achieved if women entrepreneurs are excluded.
COMESA entrusted FEMCOM/COMFWB with the mission of promoting the improvement of the economic conditions of women in member states in order to achieve their full and equal participation in their national economies.
