AGI to exhibit Ghanaian products in Mali

The Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) on Thursday launched a Made-In-Ghana solo exhibition to be held in the Malian Capital, Bamako.

The six-day exhibition, which would run from March 31 to April 4, would feature Ghanaian manufactured products and companies in the services sector such as housing and real estate.

Nana Owusu-Afari, President of the AGI, said in Accra that the exhibition, a collaborative effort between the private sector and government, would create opportunities to strengthen trade relations with countries within the sub-region.

Besides, it would help promote made in Ghana goods within the sub-region.

Nana Owusu-Afari said despite efforts of integration through the various Economic Community of West African States protocols, trade within the West African sub-region remained low as compared to Europe.

Ghana’s trade with countries within the sub-region is pegged at 12 per cent.

Nana Owusu-Afari said the exhibition would harness available market potential as global competition intensified for goods and services.

He asked businesses to adopt proactive strategies to enable them to be at the top of the competition and called on members to register for the exhibition to enable them penetrate the ECOWAS market.

Mr Donald Adabere Adabre, Ghana’s Ambassador in Mali, said the embassy was putting in efforts to ensure that the exhibition succeeded.

He said a committee had been tasked to co-ordinate transport and accommodation arrangements in Bamako for the visiting exhibitors.

There is also a campaign team, which is working to advertise the exhibition in all the regions of Mali to ensure adequate participation of the Malian public.

Mr Adabre said arrangements would also be made for one- on- one meeting for exhibitors seeking to discuss investment opportunities with their Malian counterparts.

General Toumany Sissoko, Malian Ambassador, pledged the support of the Malian authorities for the successful run of the exhibition.
