The maiden edition of the Ghana Made Street Fair took off in Ghana’s capital Accra on Saturday.

The two-day fair aims at showcasing Ghanaian-owned businesses in an effort to boost patronage of locally-made products.

Drawing more than 800 exhibitors, the event is also to help stimulate the demand for local products, while ensuring quality of made-in-Ghana goods and services.

Opening the fair, Ghana’s Senior Minister Yaw Osafo-Maafo said the government would provide an enabling environment for the growth of local businesses.

He said the president wished to see Ghana being self-reliant and not dependent on aid to develop. “That is why it is important to promote local production and consumption to make our industrialization drive possible,” he said. Enditem
