ROME, 16 May 2017 - An economic forum focusing on partnership opportunities has taken place as part of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) project titled, 'Technical assistance on SPS standards and value chains to facilitate artisanal fishers' access to international markets in West Africa'. The forum involved operators of the entire value chain, such as producers, importers, potential investors and technology providers, and included delegations from Senegal, Mauritania, Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire. During the forum, they met local companies and discussed potential synergies and investments through dedicated business to business bilateral (B2B) sessions.

The event gave West African companies - the main project beneficiaries - the chance to deepen their knowledge of the Italian cooperative model and the state-of-the art Italian fisheries sector. They also had the opportunity to attend the Slow Fish exhibition in Genoa, a global event focused on the protection of water resources, marine ecosystems and small-scale fishing communities all around the world.

The project has a three-pronged approach: (1) strengthen key institutions for the application of sanitary/phytosanitary (SPS) standards relevant to fisheries products; (2) enhance training services for local actors involved in the sector on a variety of themes including the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and the cooperative model; (3) identify and promote potential partnerships, investment and technology transfer opportunities. The project is implemented in cooperation with Legacoop (the League of Italian Cooperatives).
