Reliconn [legally known as Reliconn (Shanghai) Ltd] aims at helping Africa grows a solid SMEs sector. Like any other region, Africa needs a solid SMEs sector to create jobs and sustain economic development. Unfortunately, the SMEs sector in Africa lacks the tools and technology to play this role for Africa’s economy. That’s why we’ve created a platform for African SMEs to trade, partner, and learn from their Asian counterparts to become the engine of Africa’s economy.
