African economies are growing above global averages, presenting significant opportunities for local and international companies. The new Africa Continental Free Trade Area Agreement is becoming a big draw for multinationals to invest more in Africa. Education and professional development are essential for African countries to take full advantage of emerging opportunities and put their youthful populations to proper use. WTC Accra’s partnership with Altkom Akademia is a strategic alliance to equip Africans for the continent’s impending economic boom.
Commenting on the partnership, the Executive Chairman of World Trade Centre Accra, Togbe Afede XIV, indicated that this partnership was inspired by WTC Accra’s strategic objective of promoting prosperity across the continent. He further suggested that the collaboration with Altkom Akademia will position WTC Accra as a leading provider of education and professional development services in Africa. It will also enable governments and corporations to enhance the capacity of their workers and prepare them adequately to face the challenges of the dynamic global market.
