The Ghana Nigeria Business Council is set to organize its maiden breakfast series event in partnership with the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) titled ‘Real Opportunities in Ghana’.
The event, which is slated for Tuesday 20th July 2021, at Alisa Hotel in Ridge, Accra will start at 8am.
Speakers billed to speak at the event include CEO of the GIPC, Yofi Grant, Mrs Kate Abbeo, from the Ghana Free Zones Authority (GFZA), and Mr Maxwell Osei-Poku, from the Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA).
Highlighting some key areas that will be discussed ahead of the event, the Chairman of the Ghana Nigeria Business Council Reginald Laryea said the event will provide insight on ‘low-hanging’ opportunities for businesses and investors to take advantage of in Ghana, whilst also revealing successful stories and case studies thus far.
“It is very easy for us to tell Nigerians and other foreigners to invest in Ghana or to come and set up business, but what they really want to know is ‘what can we do?’ ‘What does it take?’ ‘Who is doing it?’, ‘what are the lessons learnt’ and much more”, he said.
“As such, our first event is looking at not only talking about the opportunities, but also providing real content which potential investors will be informed by and can make informed decisions. This event does not seek to be a talk shop, but something tangible for our audience to engage in.” he added.
Participants will be required to pay GHC350 for non-members, while and guests can decide to participate virtually or in-person.
“As can be expected, all Covid-19 safety protocols shall be observed on the day, only participants who have registered and paid for the event shall be allowed access. We understand that quite a number of our audience are not physically able to attend, therefore we have an online paid zoom access available.” mentioned Ms Nadia Takyiwaa-Mensah, Executive Secretary of the Ghana Nigeria Business Council.
