U.S. – GHANA Executive Business Roundtable H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
September 24, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Following the recent U.S-Ghana Business Forum in Accra, the U.S.-Africa Business Center and AmCham-Ghana are organizing, incollaboration with the Ghana Investment Promotion Center (GIPC), an Executive Business Roundtable on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in September this year. The U.S.-Ghana Executive Business Roundtable will be chaired by H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic of Ghana and will serve as a platform to improve the commercial ties between the U.S. and Ghana.
The U.S. and Ghana enjoy a long history of cooperation. With over $1.2 billion in trade volume, the U.S is one of Ghana’s largest trading partners. The U.S.-Ghana Executive Business Roundtable will provide another opportunity for both countries to collaborate on a wide range of sectors, including energy, transport, agriculture, digital economy, industry and finance. The Executive Business Roundtable will gather captains of U.S. industries, with interest in Ghana, to foster partnerships geared towards expanding business activities, trade and investment between both countries. As H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo work towards his Ghana Beyond Aid agenda through initiatives like One Distict, One Factory, opportunities abound for U.S and Ghanaian companies to work together towards achieving the President’s vision for Ghana. Through this roundtable, business leaders from both countries will explore a number of avenues to best contribute to Ghana’s path towards development and prosperity for its people.
The Roundtable will culminate into the signing of an MOU between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Ghana Investment Promotion Center, which will be witnessed by H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage with government officials to discuss issues of common interest and explore new business opportunities. To sustain this effort and improve the commercial relationship between the two countries, the U.S.-Africa Business Center and its partners in Ghana will develop a program of activities, including a Business Forum to be organized every year, alternating venues between Ghana and the United States.
