As the world unites to fight and manage the challenges presented by the global Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic, a number of companies across the globe are doing their bit to protect staff, engage local community, educate customers and directly contribute to fight against the virus

And in line with this BE brings you a small list of what some of the biggest brands are doing

Archaeologists have shown that Ecuador’s capital Quito has a history which extends back over 5,000 years, making it one of the oldest cities in the world. This is at least in part due to the city’s famous geography: at an altitude of 2,850 metres above sea level, defenders of the city were able to see enemies coming a few hours in advance. These days, it just means the views are spectacular.

Metro de Santo Domingo: Un transformador cumple 10 años

El Metro de Santo Domingo, el sistema de metro más extenso de la región de America Central, cumple 10 años en 2019. Durante este tiempo, el metro ha transportado más de 500 millones de pasajeros en la ciudad, y cada año muestra un crecimiento significativo. Vale destacar que, diez años después de su apertura, un boleto de metro cuesta lo mismo que el día en que se abrió: RD$ 20 (cuarenta centavos de dólar estadounidense).

Mina Cobre Las Cruces: Leading Spain’s Mining Turnaround


Fernando Ruiz


It is ten years since Business Excellence first visited Ambatovy Joint Venture Project in Madagascar. At that time, the mine was still at the preparatory phase, albeit with serious ambition. With total funding for the project crossing the $5.5 billion threshold, it was, and remains to this day, the largest investment in Madagascar’s history, and has contributed nearly a quarter of the country’s tax revenues since it become operational.


Located 355 kilometres east of Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou, the Boungou mine is the fifth largest mine in the West African country, which is making a name for itself as a serious player in the global gold market. Gold production in Burkina Faso has been on a fast upward trend over the past decade, growing from 22 million ounces in 2010 to 58 million ounces in 2020. At the time of writing, production growth shows no sign of stopping.


Statistics provided by Senegal’s National Agency of Statistics and Demography (ANSD) show that the West African country’s merchandise exports grew almost three-fold between 2009 and 2019, the period before the Covid-19 pandemic. Although this growth can be attributed to several factors, perhaps none deserves more credit than the arrival of DP World at Port Autonome de Dakar in 2007.
