The overall objective of TRAIDE is to increase sustainable trade and investment in Africa to positively contribute to inclusive economic growth. Private companies play a key role in the transition from aid to trade, creating jobs, paying thriving wages, exchanging knowledge, building local capacity, and introducing new technologies. TRAIDE works with individual companies, cluster of companies as well as local private sector associations (PSAs) to increase sustainable trade and investment in African countries to contribute to inclusive economic growth. The TRAIDE Foundation has currently active programs in Rwanda and Ethiopia. In each country we have a local team, which is supported by TRAIDE Foundation in the Netherlands. While the TRAIDE program is similar in set-up, implementation in each country is adapted to local circumstances.
