World Trade Centre Accra organizes investment mission to Canada

The seven-day trip, being undertaken under the auspices of the World Trade Centre, Accra, would enable the officials to participate in the fourth edition of Centralia, a business to business forum, being held from May 25th -27th 2016 in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada.

Centralia is designed for businesses seeking new opportunities and the three-day event would help the companies to make connections and thereafter increase business, form new partnerships and explore global markets, as well as learn from international trade experts and world-class keynote speakers.

Participating companies include the National Investment Bank, Strategic Energies, SAS Finance Group, and Ideal Finance group, among others.

At a pre-departure briefing in Accra, Mr Emmanuel Doni-Kwame, Managing Director, WTC Accra, said the mission aimed to introduce Ghanaians to global firms and prospective partners in the areas of construction and Infrastructure, finance and investment.

He urged the businesses to use the global network to enhance their businesses and win new partners.

Mr Doni-Kwame said the engagement is expected to strengthen the collaboration between the two countries and foster business opportunities for trade investment.

He urged the companies to make strong presentations of their various companies during the visit to attract investors into the country.

Mr Peter Fiamor, the Trade Commissioner, High Commission of Canada, said the trade relationship between Canada and Ghana needed to mature and urged the Ghanaian officials to use the opportunity to identify partners for the growth of their businesses.

The Ghanaian officials would participate in breakout business sessions, hear from experts and hold one-on-one meetings to introduce Ghana and prospective businesses to the more than 700 business leaders from Canada and others from 30 different countries.

The Centre had organized successful trade missions to Brazil, the United States of America, Italy and China among others to enable Ghanaian companies to exhibit their products for business opportunities and investments.
