As part of improving its business climate after losing precious points in the latest rankings of the Doing Business report, Gabon is now making it possible to create online businesses thanks to the Digital Investment Window (GNI) , effective since June 2 at the National Agency for the Promotion of Investments (ANPI-Gabon).
Starting your business online in Gabon has been possible since Tuesday. The general management of ANPI-Gabon has announced the entry into service of its Digital Investment Window (GNI), which is supposed to dematerialize the whole process of business creation in the country. This new solution, in addition to targeting the improvement of the business climate to allow the country to be ranked higher in the next Doing Business report, is also justified by the ambition expressed for several months by the public structure to digitize its services to make them more accessible to users.
The Digital Investment Counter, according to ANPI-Gabon, is also part of the accompanying measures taken by the government to fight against the spread of Covid-19. The objective is, therefore, to allow future business leaders to get started from their home without having to make the trip to the agency’s headquarters in downtown Libreville.
In practical terms, the GNI allows users to have “more ease in [their] steps to create, modify, manage, and terminate the administrative life of [their] business,” ANPI-Gabon, who specifies that ‘by proceeding online from their smartphone, in an internet café or in any of the places where they have access to the Internet, these users will be perfectly “in compliance with the requirements of public administration in Gabon”.
“All of your company’s administrative information will be saved and secured in your ANPI account so that you can access it at all times,” reassures the agency, which indicates, however, that a form must be completed online for opening your account.
