Ghana goods exhibition starts

Made in Ghana goods exhibition organized by the Ghanaian High Commission in collaboration with the Association of Ghana Industries and Ghana export promotion Council was formally opened yesterday at the Presidential Lounge of the National Stadium in Freetown.


Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Mohamed Koroma, performed the officially opening and also chaired the programme. He described the annual trade fair in Sierra Leone as an initiative to providing a unique opportunity in consolidating the long standing bilateral relationship between the two countries and strengthening the trade ties.
He went on to say that President Ernest Bai Koroma continued to lay emphasis on how he intends running the country as a business because previous government had failed the nation. On the other hand though, he stressed President Koroma zeal to prioritize the private sector which provides immediate result in every country.
The Deputy Minister also hopes that this annual Trade Fair will remain a permanent phenomenon of this cooperation through which new product and technology are introduced into our local market.
Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Mabinty Daramy on behalf of the President and the people of Sierra Leone  express a great sense of pride and fulfillment to have yet another Ghanaian Trade Fair organized in our country which she says, all Sierra Leoneans know is usually a successful show, not only for Ghana but also for Sierra Leone.
Earlier on, High Commissioner of Ghana to Sierra Leone, Her Excellency Dr. Mokowa Blay Adu Gyamfi in her welcome statement recalled that since 2004 they have either organized or participated in trade exhibition in Freetown. Trade Fair, she says, is of great significance to her country and this fair which will exhibit only made in Ghana goods shows that her country’s private sector is really developing.
