‘Seminar on Economy and Business Opportunities with Ghana’ organized by the federation of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FTAPCCI) at their Hyderabad office, on 17th January 18, was an instant success.
The opportunities in Ghana, which opens the doors to Africa, through unique initiatives, were interesting and lucrative as well. The bonding between India and Ghana date back to the days when both the nations were colonized by Great Britain. Repeatedly we have reiterated our mutual concern by the leaders at the helm of both the nations.
The highlight of the event was H.E. MICHAEL ANN OQUAYE ESQ, High Commissioner of Ghana, the chief guest of the occasion. He briefed about the various opportunities in their country. Later at the question hour, cleared many doubts expressed by entrepreneurs who wanted to venture into Ghana.
The opening of the speech was laudable when the chief guest said that he was in India to develop a bond with the country, as Indians are warmth, dependable and etiquette.
He further explained the similarities in culture, heritage and ideologies between the two countries. He concluded by inviting experienced entrepreneurs from sectors like mining, agriculture, infrastructure and energy to start facilities in Ghana to cater African markets.
The participants, in good numbers, from many enterprising sectors were convinced with the information provided at the event and planned to take the right steps to take the participation to the next levels. The day ended with a positive note.
Ghana is a country rich in Gold, Cocoa, nuts and timber products. Their tax-free initiatives to certain sectors and ease of doing business climate are considered quite attractive for entrepreneurs. Certain policies by the Ghana government to develop an industry in every district are worth mentioning.
It is a win-win situation to aspiring industrialists as there are almost 15000+ Indians in Ghana. The present situation of the country is similar to India during pre-liberalization times when opportunities are abundant and markets are wide open.
Way2World salutes all such daring minds that tread away from comfort zones to establish global entities and bring pride to the nation.
