GNCCI HOLDS HIGH-POWERED BUSINESS MEETING UNDER AGOA IN NEW YORK
The Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GNCCI)
held a high-powered Business-to-Business (B2B) meeting which saw over 50 African American businesses, with diverse business operations, strike business deals with their Ghanaian business counterparts. The event took place at the Consulate General of Ghana Building in New York on Tuesday, 10th December, 2019 and was moderated by Professor Emeritus Samuel K. Amoako (Consul General, New York) and Mr. Frederick Adu Amoako (Chief Operations Officer, GNCCI).
Nana Dr. Dankawoso I expressed his appreciation to Prof. Amoako and his office, the GNCCI organising team, and members for the efforts towards the event. He noted that Government of Ghana was committed to improving the business climate through policies and programmes, and regulatory reforms. He informed members that the GNCCI was well positioned to support government’s policies and programmes as well private sector growth. He was confident that the high-powered nature of the B2B meeting with the calibre of American businesses coming on board will translate to significant investments in the Ghanaian economy.
Prof. Amoako, who is also a former Council Member of GNCCI, urged Ghanaian businesses to consider partnership with their US counterpart given the associated numerous benefits, other than being independent. He noted that “associations and mergers are very key to taking on huge business deals. They can’t do it all by themselves. The opportunities from the US market are huge; hence the need to join forces to deepen trade volumes”.
