WUSME addressing role of MSMEs in a virtual Conference on Employers and Diaspora in Cameroon
On July 29, WUSME Board Member Mr. Michel FOSSAERT spoke at the virtual conference organized by the Cameroonian NGO Think and Do Tank THE OKWELIANS.
The round table was the fourth sequence of a cycle of workshops on “REFOUNDING THE EMPLOYERS” and was dedicated to the DIASPORA, in particular to the theme of “Challenges of an inclusive representativeness, making the diaspora an essential player in the new economic cooperation”.
The seminar focused on “the role of diasporas in building the new employer cooperation” and their involvement within employers in responding to the challenges of our current economy.
Different Speakers, representatives of Employers’ organizations, Chambers of Commerce and Entities committed to promoting investment and trade in Cameroon, took the floor to bring their experiences and views.
In his introduction, Mr. Mossadek BALLY, President of the Malian Employers’ Organization, gave his testimony on the restructuring of his employers’ union, the role that must be played and the need to develop MSMEs in agricultural processing before being able to develop other sectors in order to rebalance social structures.
WUSME highlighted its presence in Africa, in more than 25 countries, and the support provided to African MSMEs.
Mr. Fossaert stressed the need for MSMEs to work in the framework of International Networks. The diaspora offers important assets such as talent, investment opportunities at home and connections across the world. WUSME is a good platform of contacts and opportunities for Cameroonian MSMEs to seize and is delighted to associate its action with that of the Cameroonian diaspora through The Okwelians.
