A top Ghanaian official urged Ghanaian businesses here on Monday to take particular advantage of the upcoming Shanghai International Import Exposition (Shanghai Expo) in November.
Carlos Kingsley Ahenkora, Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry, said during the opening of the Second China Trade Week in Ghana that the West African country would be heavily represented at the expo to break into the Chinese market.
“I am going to advise businessmen here present to take advantage of the upcoming Shanghai Expo in November. I want everybody to be there; we are going to have a very huge Ghanaian pavilion where every product that is manufactured here in Ghana will be showcased,” he pleaded.
On the other hand, Ahenkora described the garment and textile sub-sector as an area that takes a lot more human labor which needed support to develop for its potential benefits.
The deputy minister therefore urged Chinese businesses to take advantage of Ghana’s garment trade agreement.
There are 50 Chinese manufacturing firms participating in the three-day China Trade Week program that also saw heavy patronage from Ghanaian business personnel on the first day.
Economic and Commercial Counselor of the Chinese Embassy in Ghana, Chai Zhijing, invited Ghanaian businesses to take advantage of the Shanghai International Import Expo in November to showcase their competitive products to the Chinese market. Enditem
