Ghana’s High Commissioner to India Robert Tachie-Menson believes that bilateral trade between the two countries would reach $1 billion by 2013, the Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) has reported March 12, 2012.

“We expect bilateral trade between India and Ghana to reach $1 billion by 2013. The bilateral trade in 2010-2011 was at $818 million. Though this is projected growth, we are very hopeful about it,” IANS quoted the Ghanaian envoy Tachie-Menson as saying at a programme organised by the Merchants Chamber of Commerce & Industry of India.

He mentioned that there were tremendous opportunities for Indian companies and investors in the engineering and electrical sectors, for the manufacture of consumer appliances and for heavy equipment for production, transmission and distribution, the report said.
