Ghana will turn to the Scandinavian countries of Sweden, Denmark, and Norway for investment partnerships, the Ghana Investment Promotion Center (GIPC) said here on Friday.
In that respect, a 50-man investment promotion team will visit these countries, starting from Monday (November 18), to seek investment partners for some Ghanaian private sector players.
The GIPC which is organizing the trip will present a cross-section of Ghanaian private sector businesses with bankable projects for partnership with their peers in the three Scandinavian countries.
Since 1994 the GIPC has registered 123 different investments from these three countries, valued at 250.5 million US dollars.
These investments are spread across the areas of agriculture, building, and construction; export trading, general trading, liaison, manufacturing, services, and tourism.
“The choice of destination for the investment mission formed part of a strategic process of engaging with Europe and the European Union,” the chief executive officer (CEO) of GIPC, Yoofi Grant explained.
The mission will lay emphasis on multi-sectoral development including port logistics, housing, and transport; food and agriculture, water, environment information and communication technology, financial technology, and renewable energy.
Highlights of the mission which is also supported by the embassies of the three countries in Ghana include a business forum, business-to-business meetings, and company site visits in each country as well as meeting with Ghanaian business owners in Denmark and Norway. Enditem
