Ahaspora, GH-PAC USA and Diaspora Drive will host the Ghana Action Forum under the theme ‘Bridging Home & Abroad for Ghana’s Development’ on March 3rd.
The Ghana Action Forum is a two-day event that envisions actionable and implementable outcomes which will further spur growth and development in the country and simultaneously impact the diaspora
The Ghana Action Forum is endorsed by Beyond the Return, with key partners including Diaspora Affairs under the Office of the President and Ghana Tourism Development Company.
Key sponsors for the upcoming event include: Fidelity Bank, Expresspay, European Union GrEEn Project, British High Commission, Enterprise Insurance and Ghana Investment Promotion Centre. Along with the events’ strong corporate and governmental support, the Ghana Action Forum is pulling some of Ghana’s top industry leaders to participate in panel conversations and keynote speeches highlighting key challenges/opportunities, and proposing strategic solutions to engage diasporans with Ghana.
“We are really excited about hosting the Ghana Action Forum in March; the event was conceptualised to promote deeper engagement for members of the diaspora who are coming to Ghana. The forum aims to engage with a two-pronged approach: one for Diasporans who are living in Ghana, running businesses or programmes within communities and can share insights, strategies and opportunities. Secondly, for Diasporans who are not living in Ghana and are equally not looking to relocate, but want to contribute and add value nevertheless,” stated the Founder of Ahaspora Professional’s Network, Christabel Dadzie.
“In addition to the conference, we are celebrating10 years of Ahaspora with a Gala event taking place in the evening at the FitzGerald on Friday 4th March.”
Independence Day presents itself as an ideal time for collective reflection on the country’s growth, as well as shaping and planning the way forward for today’s and future generations.
