As part of strategies to meet the demands of companies and individuals in the manufacturing industry, Propak Ghana is scheduled to have its inaugural ceremony in Accra from June 6-8, 2023, at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
The event promises to offer a platform for trading, business networking, learning and product sourcing.
It is expected to host more than 40 speakers who will speak on innovative and transformation topics.
In a media interaction at a pre-event conference in Accra, the Regional Director – West Africa at Afrocet Montgomery, George Pearson indicated that the event would ensure Ghana’s plan of transforming its economy from one heavily reliant on natural resources, to a true value-added exports-lead economy.
“Propak Ghana will be launching into Accra as the leading exhibition and conference for the packaging, plastics, processing and printing industries,” he said.
“Propak Ghana has been designed to support companies and individuals involved across the manufacturing spectrum, by creating an environment where business partnerships can develop and trade exchanges can take place,” he added.
On his part, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Export Promotion Authority, Albert Kassim Diwura urged Ghanaian exporters to enhance their product presentation to meet international standards to help shore up revenue.
“As technology develops, the packaging sector changes, resulting in the development of creative and sustainable solutions, over time GEPA has taught majority of our exporters the importance of using appropriate environmentally friendly packaging for their goods,” he said.
“Packaging today represents a brands identity, values and dedication to quality; it’s much more than just a simple protective covering,” he added.
