Expect more investments in 2023 – CHANCHAM to members


The Executive Secretary of the Canada Ghana Chamber of Commerce (CANCHAM), Edwina Atta Sonno, has said the year 2023 will be one that provides investment opportunities for members of the chamber in the economy’s various sectors.

According to her, measures have been put in place to ensure everything planned turns into an achievement. She said there have been a lot of conversations with partners in Canada to provide financing for the various sectors; such as mining, oil and gas, education and agro-business, among others.

“With regard to trade, expect more from us. There are a couple of activities that are happening in Canada as well. We have just had a trade mission where there was dinner for the team from Ghana and Canada, and it was so successful that conversations have already started going around investment from Canada to Ghana; so expect a lot from the Chamber next year,” she said during the chamber’s ‘End of Year Dinner and Awards Night’ in Accra.

The Dinner and Awards Night was held to celebrate the contribution of deserving members, partners as well as council members for their contribution to the chamber’s growth. She said it was a way of saying ‘thank you’ to them for their efforts.

Among some key people honoured at the event were Ex-officio, Ex-presidents of the chamber and some platinum-member organisations.

Highlighting some achievements of the association Ms. Sonno said: “This year alone we have had four great trade missions, and the essence of doing that is to attract investors into Ghana; and the second thing is to migrate best practices”.

As part of the chamber’s contribution to society, a member has supported 12 women to receive workplace experience as part of empowering women in the Northern part of the country.

She added that the CEOs’ Connect – an initiative of the chamber that was introduced this year – is one that brought huge transformation to most members of the chamber. She said it created a bond for the members to know themselves more as well as other public sector people that participated, which created opportunities for some of them.

Ms. Sonno, speaking on the awards for next year, said although this year was honorary, the next one will be based on achievements of the various companies as well as individuals; hence, it is expected that all members will work extra hard to be part of the recognition.
