During the week of August 17, 2015, USAID’s Southern Africa Trade Hub presented at the inaugural Trade Subcommittee co-hosted by USAID and the EU in Maputo at the USAID Mozambique Mission. Representatives from UNIDO, GIZ, INNOQ, and UNDP attended the meeting.
The Trade Hub delivered a presentation on the overall impact of the USAID regional program with focus on work in-country with USAID’s partners from the Instituto Nacional de Normalização e Qualidade (INNOQ). The meeting followed closely on the heels of the launch of the National Enquiry Point by INNOQ and the Trade Hub on August 13.
UNIDO and GIZ are large financial and technical assistance supporters of INNOQ, and an important purpose of the meeting was to coordinate future donor activities with INNOQ to ensure maximum impact of the assistance programs and to avoid program and training duplication.
