It is anticipated to have more than 400 exhibitors from private, government, and corporate sectors, welcoming over 30,000 visitors. Chinese companies from various industries, including technology, machinery, chemicals, health, engineering, and agriculture, will participate to foster innovation and knowledge-sharing with their Ghanaian counterparts.
The event is set to be graced by distinguished guests, including Ghana’s Vice President, H.E. Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Ministers of State, Members of Parliament, all 22 Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in the Central Region, members of the Diplomatic Corps, Chiefs, Queen mothers of the Central Region, the business community, and the media fraternity.
