The meeting with Benedict Kabore followed several working sessions, gathering including Mr. Richard Bationo, director of the National Employment Agency of the Central region, Mr. Hato Ouédraogo, Adviser to the DG for Employment and Miss Elise Cannuel Relations Manager Exterhum external to Africa.
Mr. Tamboura Ousséni taking over from Mr. Kabore to the Directorate of ANPE, the thought process was relaunched with a new dynamism.
Ms. Yanogo stressed the full readiness of Exterhum Africa to make this partnership successful, so the demand for employment in the mining sector to cross the national demand.
As part of this partnership, a mining business directory has already been prepared and transmitted to the ANPE.
This framework partnership agreement will be implemented through specific agreements on the various joint actions.
