GIPC leads private sector business delegation to Netherlands

The Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) is leading a private sector business delegation on an investment promotion mission to the Netherlands scheduled to take place from 4th to 9th March 2019. 

The mission is jointly organized with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ghana with the assistance of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and Netherlands African Business Council (NABC) and supported by the Ghana Embassy in the Netherlands. 

The objective of the mission is to showcase investment opportunities in Ghana and pursue opportunities for bilateral trade and investments in the areas of agriculture and agro-processing, waste management, ports and logistics, and Information, Communication and Technology (ICT).

It also intends to promote collaboration between companies of the two countries and assist them to identify opportunities for strategic partnerships, as well as promote Dutch technology, equipment and knowledge, and improve trade relations between both countries. 

The 4-day program will include, an Investment seminar, B2B event, relevant company/ site visits and a Ghana Diaspora Investment Seminar. 

The program will be arranged with the assistance of the NABC. The NABC established in 1946, promotes commerce in Africa by providing Dutch companies with the tools they need to succeed in the various regions and markets across the continent. 

The Council has over the last few years hosted more than 60 trade missions in Africa and over 50 in the Netherlands. 

These missions are carried out to facilitate the exchange of both tangible and non-tangible assets between regional entrepreneurs. 

They allow both African and Dutch businesses to become familiar with the practices, strategies and technologies used in their respective regions, and often usher in fruitful business relationships. 

The RVO is a government agency which operates under the auspices of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. 

Its activities are commissioned by the various ministries and the European Union. 

The agency stimulates entrepreneurs in sustainable, agricultural, innovative and international business. 

It also aims to improve opportunities for entrepreneurs, strengthen their position and help them realise their international ambitions with funding, networking, know-how and compliance with laws and regulations. 

This high-level mission will send a strong message to the Dutch business community in the Netherlands and strategically position Ghana in the Netherlands as an interesting trade and investment destination within the region.
