Make Ghana Your Investment Hub

The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Investment Promotion Center (GIPC) is calling on Chinese investors to make Ghana their investment hub in West Africa.

According to Yofi Grant, this will diversify the economy as well as create jobs for Ghanaians which will intensify the mutual relationship between the two countries.

He was speaking at the opening of the maiden edition of the China Trade Week held in Accra.

The China Trade Week is an event that seeks to give the local community a platform to develop direct trade links with high-end Chinese product manufacturers in the country and also bridge the trade gap between China, Africa and the Middle East.

At the official opening held at Kempinski Hotel, international event director at Middle East International Exhibition, Michelle Meyrick stated that the exhibition is one of the best opportunities for connecting local buyers to the relevant manufacturers in the Chinese industry.

“For our first time in Ghana, we are focusing on b2b matching to make sure we are giving the best opportunity of connecting the local buyers to the relevant manufacturers in their industry. We already have over 300 meetings scheduled over the 2-day event.”

“We have launched our free China Trade Week app which is the first event we are using it. The local buyers can log on to the app and see information about all of our exhibitions, chat with them online and set up the onsite meeting with them” she added 

The GIPC's CEO, Yofi Grant added that Ghana is very well positioned in West Africa in mobilizing capital for the sub-regional markets as well as the continent.

“China has positioned itself very well as the factory of the world, Ghana can position itself as a factory of West Africa and Africa. We urge you to bring the investors here to actually invest, build the factories here and we will make the conditions good for them to come and build here in order to create jobs for the people so that they can also create wealth for themselves,” he stated.

The two-day exhibition and B2B matching conference has so far brought together reputable manufacturers from china to showcase high quality products that aim at building trade relations with local businesses across a range of sectors including construction, machinery, auto parts, led lighting, medical technology, print, packaging and plastics, hygienic products and many more.

The event is expected to attract more than 10 thousand professionals worldwide to enable them seek new sources of their products and services from the Middle East.
