Although every effort has been made to verify and update these data, the Centre cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies or omissions in the information in question.

Since it was formed in 1977, the Centre for the Development of Industry (CDI) has acquired substantial technical and commercial know-how in the service of the creation, development and rehabilitation of small and medium-sized enterprises in ACP countries (Africa, Caribbean and Pacific), particularly through the setting up of lasting partnerships with companies in the European Union.
With the publication of the “Practical Guides” collection, the CDI is responding to a clearly expressed need among ACP promoters and EU entrepreneurs wishing to establish industrial cooperation with these countries. The guides are aimed at allowing them to adapt to the particular technical, commercial, financial, administrative and legal environment of the different local contexts. Designed to offer concrete assistance in this task - in simple practical terms - in a specific field or on particular aspects of their activities, they are aimed above all at providing an effective tool in the service of the manager.
In preparing these guides, the CDI calls upon the services of consultants, researchers and practitioners - in the ACP countries and/or the European Union - with extensive experience of the field concerned and of the practical problems encountered by entrepreneurs, along with the solutions to be applied. When circumstances allow it, the CDI teams up with a co-publisher (consultancy, research body, specialised institution, etc.) in order to ensure that the guides have the widest possible circulation.
This guide has been prepared by two experts:
• Professor Papa El Hassan Diop, veterinarian, for the “Dairy Farming” section,
Under the supervision of Chérif Touré, CDI sectoral coordinator.
