The Catalonia Trade & Investment office in Accra is directed by Florence Hiard. She specializes in African markets and has enjoyed a long career in the field of consulting and internationalization projects in sub-Saharan Africa. The Accra office also has a further consultant and a wide network of partners throughout West Africa.
ACCIÓ’s office in Accra is relatively new. It opened in 2014 in order to help Catalan companies to take greater advantage of the potential of a huge and diverse geographical area. In the brief time it has been operating, the Accra Office has already worked on more than 200 projects, notably in the fields of chemicals and energy, food, and industrial systems.
The tasks most frequently performed by the office include searching for marketing channels, following up contacts and customers, scheduling business meetings and organizing trade missions.
