Oquaye, Professor Alex Dodoo – CEO Ghana Standards Authority, Hon. Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah Dep. Minister of Trade & Industry and Mr. Yofi Grant – CEO of GIPC.

The Ghana Embassy in India also organized a business forum with the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) for the Ghana Delegation.

The Ghana Delegation comprised of private sector businesspersons, and representatives of government institutions.

The CII- EXIM Bank Conclave has, in recent years, emerged as the pioneer event for Indian and African governments and industry to explore new avenues of partnerships.

Mission to Malta

GIPC similarly put together a Ghanaian business delegation for an investment promotion mission during the recent State Visit of H.E The President to Malta. Five MoUs were signed in the areas of Medicine, Bilateral Air Services, Avoidance of Double Taxation, Tourism, and Joint Commission for Bilateral Co-operation.

The objective of the mission was to promote investment opportunities in Ghana and to create a platform for interested Ghanaian business people to meet the Maltese business Community and to get to know about business opportunities in Malta.

The business delegation from Ghana, led by the CEO of GIPC, R. Yofi Grant, consisted of a mix of people from both the Public and Private Sector.

Mr. Grant spoke briefly about Ghana’s strategic positioning, the country’s relationship with Malta and investment opportunities that the Maltese business community can take advantage of.

Mission highlights included a Malta-Ghana Business Forum organized by Trade Malta in collaboration with the GIPC, which saw interactions between Maltese investors and the Ghanaian Mission.
