Made-in-Ghana Summit slated for Dec


The Made in Ghana Summit 2022 (Breakfast Business Summit) is scheduled for Monday, December 12, 2022 at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel, and will highlight the importance of relying less on the importation of commodities which could be produced locally, and by so doing grow the country’s economy; and discuss and promote pertinent issues confronting Ghana’s cedi depreciating against the major trading currencies, as well as manufacturing downtime.

The event is organised by the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Ghana (EFG) and relevant stakeholders on the theme ‘Building strong Ghanaian Brands for global competitiveness’. The Summit is sponsored by McDan Group, M & G Pharmaceuticals Ltd., B5Plus Group, Jay Kay Industries & Investments Ltd., Azar Group, and Blow Chem Industries Ltd.

The Summit seeks to bring in foreign companies to establish offshore and multinational manufacturing industries in Ghana to create jobs, wealth; reduce poverty, inflation and cedi depreciation; and industrialise our economy. The one-day summit’s key agenda is a holistic national framework that projects made-in-Ghana brands as the surest and most bankable option.

The Made-in-Ghana Summit is designed to assemble over 200 influential manufacturing Chief Executive Officers, captains of industry, business executives, development partners, diplomatic corps, policymakers and entrepreneurs on one platform to support government’s industrialisation agenda, and modernise our agricultural sector to generate enough foreign exchange through exports.

The economy of any nation grows rapidly when locally-made products are promoted through patronage: first by its people, then through export. We need to diversify the economy toward relieving the country from relying on imported commodities to survive as a country; and as a matter of urgency, we must take advantage of the single African Market as created by the AfCFTA for industrial growth, and the Pan-African Payment and Settlement System (PAPSS).
