As a Young Water Expert, I worked with Ghana Netherlands Business and Cultural Council (GNBCC), which coordinates with Daily Business on assignments in Ghana. My focus was on companies in the Water Sector; where I helped in identifying and informing GNBCC, NWP about business opportunities for Dutch-Ghanaian cooperation and partnerships. I also facilitated visits of Dutch Water Sector Organisations to Ghana and helped to introduce Dutch companies to the right potential partners.
