China Trade Week to attract more investors to Ghana

Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Investments Promotion Centre (GIPC) says his outfit is seeking to use the China Trade Week to attract more investments to Ghana.

The event is expected to bring about a hundred investors and six thousand visitors to explore business opportunities between China and Ghana.

China is currently one of Ghana’s largest trading partner. According to statistics, Ghana’s export to China surpassed $1.85 billion in 2018 whereas China-Ghana bilateral exchange reached $6.67 billion in 2017 spanning across various sectors.

Speaking to JoyBusiness at the launch of the 3rd China Trade Week, Yoofi Grant said they are hopeful the Trade Week will open the doors for more investments and expansion.

“I think an exhibition of such a nature will benefit us because I think we can learn and find the partnerships to help us manufacture for exports. We will eventually like the Chinese to come and manufacture here and also export to other countries as we establish Ghana as a hub,” he said.

The third edition of the trade show will explore opportunities in various sectors including manufacturing and construction, clothing and textiles, printing materials and packaging, Service Equipment, Foods, Home electrical and electronic products and many more.

International Director for the MIE Group, Zahoor Ahmed, organizers of the event identified the occasion as a great opportunity for business folks both in Ghana and neighbouring countries. He noted that Ghana’s friendly business environment was a huge motivation for Chinese investors.

He said, “The Chinese investors have found out that the ease of doing business in Ghana is more favourable than in other African countries and that’s why we see a phenomenal growth of business coming to Ghana.”

The China Trade Week will come off from June 19 to 21 at the Accra International Conference Center.
