An important convergence point for corporate executives across the country, the latest edition of the Ghana Gulf Chamber of Commerce (GGCC)’s Strategic Networking and New Member Introductory Event came off at the Cleaver House in Accra last Wednesday, November 29.
The gathering was to afford both old and existing members of the chamber, an opportunity to interact and share ideas in a relaxing environment. The event also witnessed presentations from Interpay, Kow Company, Heritage Securities, Alisa Hotel, and Softlanding.
A monthly programme, it follows an October business improvement workshop in the Dubai Chambers at the World Trade Centre building – Accra.
A “full purpose Business Chamber”, the Ghana Gulf Chamber of Commerce looks to develop “potent business opportunities between Ghana and the countries of the Gulf: UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Bahrain.”
Headed by Albert Ankrah, the chamber is affiliated to Ghana’s Ministry of Trade and Industry, the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, TMC (Dubai), as well as the Philippines Chamber of Commerce. It also engages in other events as conferences, exhibitions and training sessions to better foster business relations between the two territories.
In an interview with ENEWSGH, Chamber Manager Ms. Stella Exe- Evans expressed her elation at the success of the program, adding that the purpose for the gathering, which is to further the bond between business establishments in both terrains, was well met.
She also mentioned that preparations are already underway for subsequent editions, while expressing a fervent desire to see even more members onboard.
“This is our little way of augmenting efforts by government to tighten relations between businesses in Ghana and the Gulf region, as it inures to our collective benefit. We look forward to more members to this family, and are confident of all stakeholders leveraging on the event toward improved relations amongst us”, she said.
