In a bid to enhance and increase Ghana’s trade partners and extend the country’s export market, key players in international trading have called for policies that would enhance trading activities in Africa.
The call was made at the launch of the Enterprise Africa Summit.
Head of Business Development and Partnerships for British Council Ghana, Sydney Hushie who spoke to Citi Business News said activities are underway with the Ministry of Trade and Industry to establish policies that will enhance trading activities among African countries in the sub region.
“We have a very good relationship with the Ministry of Trade and Industry and we have had discussions as well as conducted a number of research on the social enterprise land scape in Ghana and we have also done some work around what sort of social landscape we should have,” he said.
He added that further discussions during the summit will breed favorable policies to facilitate trade in Africa.
“This conference is going to bring together Ministers of Trade from Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria and South Africa, to join the business leaders at the private sector forum that we are going to hold”.
He added “this is just to look at the policy environment in the continent to see what we can do differently, what we can create differently so that Africa would be seen as one business space”.
The Summit which takes place from the 22-24 of March is on the theme Enterprise Development.
The summit will host a series of events and sessions bringing together key stakeholders from Africa and the UK including ministers of state, leaders, policymakers, entrepreneurs and academia, to dialogue on next generation models and best practices in connecting enterprise to resilient development.
