The closing ceremony for the fourth edition of the Dutch Export Academy (DEA) was held on 10th May 2023 at the Airport west hotel in Accra.

The ceremony marks the end of the 4th edition of the Dutch Export Academy. The DEA program supported selected Ghanaian entrepreneurs with interest to export to the EU market through the Netherlands with training and exposure visit to the Netherlands. 

The ceremony started with a welcome address by Tjalling Wiarda, General Manager of Gnbcc, Julia Appiah, Deputy Director MDF West Africa and Maame Kanyirige, Trade and Policy Officer at the Netherlands embassy. They congratulated the participants and assured them of the continuous support from their various organisations and the need to practice what they have been taught. 

Some of the participants shared their success stories during the exposure visit and the lessons learnt from the program. 

The participants were presented with their certificates to mark their graduation from the academy. 

The training and exposure given to these entrepreneurs during the program was aimed to re-orient their businesses, products and services.  We look forward to seeing their products on the EU market. 

Congratulations Class of DEA 4th Edition!!!
