Before applying to the TGSS, Jean Michel Gba was working as Economist at Cote D'Ivoire's Ministry of Economy and Finance. According to him, he applied to TGSS because he wanted a learning experience outside as well benefit from top quality training. 


He completed, in Ecole des Mines de Nantes (France), a Master of Science in Management and Optimization of Supply Chains and Transport in 2014.

 

His masters and France experience gave him a great opportunity for his career as he learnt in a multicultural environment and gained an in depth view of relations between industry and economics. This boosted his expertise as public policy maker enabling him to design public policy that can enhance the development of innovative industries and services that can support economic development of his country.

 

Back to his job as Economist, he was promoted Senior Economist and is the head of service in charge of Economic Analysis in the Department of Economic Analysis and Investment Promotion. 


His daily job is to analyse and assess the external and internal economic shocks and their impact on our economy in order to formulate better public policies. With a multi skilled team, they produce documents to address some country specific issues related to fiscal, monetary, balance of payments, debt, or other issues. One of his objective is to promote the development of innovative services (e-commerce, e-procurement etc.) to support the economic development of Cote D'Ivoire.


According to him, the biggest benefit the scholarship gave him is the opportunity to learn from other people experience. In fact, learning abroad, helped him to learn about other cultures, learn from my peers and form new friendship. He also learnt a lot about the development path of developed countries like France, UK, Norway and emerging economies like China, Japan and South Korea. According to him, the lessons he learnt will help me a lot in developing as a leader of his country and society. 


Jean Michel believes that the partnership between Tullow and the Government has benefited all parties involved and he is proud to be a member of the Tullow Alumni community.

 

He concludes by saying “Je suis ravi d’être l’un des votre et je vous souhaite le meilleur dans votre carrière et votre vie de famille”.
