“For us, this is a key milestone for our council (GNBC) as we have made many strides since we relaunched our membership drive in November 2020. It is imperative for us to ensure we have the best people on board to realise the vision of the Ghana-Nigeria Business Council and ensure that we are putting our best foot forward at every given opportunity,” stated Reginald Laryea, Chairman of the Ghana-Nigeria Business Council.
“I am personally excited by this executive committee with a myriad of backgrounds and competencies. I am confident that in 2022 we will see our council grow and become even more relevant in the space of trade and investment between Ghana and Nigeria,” Mr. Laryea continued.
Since the council’s membership drive in November 2020, the organisation has seen a positive growth with their corporate membership, with companies such as LeasAfric, Sunu Assurance, Alisa Hotel, Camelot Printing as a few of the brands who have signed up.
Also, individual membership consisting of entrepreneurs and investors from both Ghana and Nigeria is also on the increase. The council has successfully executed a number of online and off-line events with its strategic partners – Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, Ghana Export Promotion Authority, Ghana Free Zones Authority, Ghana Revenue Authority and the Nigerian High Commission. And just at the start of the month, they celebrated 61 years of Nigeria’s Independence.
The Ghana-Nigeria Business Council has now reached a new milestone with the establishment of an executive committee.
