International Economics led a consortium to support the Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) in Drafting the National QI policy for Botswana that would set the foundation for the proper functioning of QI institutions in Botswana. The project funded by the ACP EU -TBT Program in Brussels involved capacity building of BOB’s staff and local service providers through a series of trainings on auditing and inspections competencies as per international standards.
