National Board for Small Scale Industries

The National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI) is the apex governmental body for the promotion and development of the Micro and Small Enterprises (MSE) sector in Ghana. It was established in 1985 by an Act of the Parliament of the Third Republic of Ghana (Act 434 of 1981) because Government views the sector as having the potential to contribute substantially to the reduction of the high unemployment rate and to the growth of the economy of Ghana.

NBSSI is an Agency under the Ministry of Trade and Industry with its Head Office in Accra, Secretariats in all the regional capitals and Business Advisory Centres (BACs) in one hundred and seventy (170) district capitals.

The main focus of NBSSI is to ensure that MSEs have access to high quality, affordable and accessible business support services (BDS) through the provision of client-focused quality programmes, supported by superior customer service and building strong relationships with stakeholders.
