COVID-19: Business Survival Toolkit

As the COVID-19 pandemic persists, we anticipate that SMEs will continue to experience supply and demand reduction, diminished confidence from the financial markets, and a reduction of credit. Therefore, we have designed a unique program to help address some of the challenges your businesses will face.

Does any of this classes describe your business?

  1. Class One: I am unsure how to address the impact COVID-19 is having on my business and would like to understand them and brainstorm solutions.
  2. Class Two: I have a few solutions that will help me pivot and salvage my business. I need guidance in sourcing business development opportunities.
  3. Class Three: I have a crisis preparedness plan that has salvaged my business. I need expert guidance to prepare for recovery.

We will be hosting a series of webinars and business clinics across our markets (Kenya, Ghana, Senegal and Mauritania) that will address these challenges.

  • Many African countries in recent times has sparked wide interest and discussions to create synergies and accelerate development particularly in the oil and gas industry in their respective countries economies African governments are looking for more than just economic rent from the exploitation of petroleum resources
  • Thus developing local economies, stimulating industrial development, increasing local capability, building a skilled workforce and creating a competitive supplier base is a key agenda for most African oil producing countries
  • However, the diverse culture, the lack of systems and bottlenecks in institutional frameworks in individual countries has impeded the integration of African economies to obtain sustained development The African Continental Free Trade Agreement seeks to harmonise these policies, systems and frameworks to facilitate trade, provide access and allocate resources efficiently
  • In Ghana, we believe that the local content should last beyond the oil and gas discovery and have a transformative impact on the economy creating backward and forward linkages and building competitive domestic businesses in the industry
  • Ghana as a country has missed the opportunity of enhancing local content in the mining, telecommunication and downstream petroleum sectors
  • These strategic sectors are fully taken over by foreign entities though we have equally capable Ghanaians who could have ventured into those sectors and raised capital from within to manage similar entities given the opportunity
  • However, there is still opportunity in the upstream petroleum sector to accelerate growth and make a difference
