The American Chamber of Commerce, Ghana, on Wednesday, January 17, 2024, had an engagement with the Faculty Director, Global Programs, and Director of the Center for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness at the University at Buffalo School of Management (UB), Dorothy Siaw-Asamoah, Ph.D., at the secretariate.
Professor Siaw-Asamoah, accompanied by a delegation of students who are part of their Annual Ghana Trip, met with Simon Madjie, the Executive Secretary of the Chamber, to discuss potential collaboration between the University and the Chamber’s AfCFTA Resource Center. This discourse focused on research projects related to the new continental trade agreement aimed at providing American companies with valuable information and guidance to leverage the AfCFTA and invest in the African continent.
There were also discussions on highlighting the positive impact of American companies on the Ghanaian economy while simultaneously working to correct misconceptions regarding local agricultural practices, thereby facilitating an environment for increased American investment in Ghana.
The Chamber has always hosted visiting students and faculty from the University at Buffalo, and in the interest of advancing education and strengthening technological cooperation between Ghana and the United States, the two organizations seek to further strengthen this partnership to enhance the existing relationship, recognizing the mutual benefits that will be derived from this cooperation.
Also present at the meeting was AmCham Ghana Manager for Membership, External Relations and Project, Jane Okyere-Aduachie.
