Sister programmes

Similar organisations for supporting the private sector exist in neighbouring Kenya, as well as the West African countries of Nigeria and Ghana. In September of 2012, BEST-AC hosted a conference which brought together these organisations. Discussions revealed common challenges, including how best to work with business associations, government, donors and other partners.

Here are links to the websites of these organisations:
