Rescue Shipping and Investment Agency, a Tema-based freight forwarding company, is scheduled to organise Ghana’s first ever International Conference on Trade and Finance dubbed GITFIC 2017.
The three-day conference has been scheduled to take place from Monday, 10 April to Wednesday 12 April at the Alisa Hotel in Accra.
The event, according to organisers, will bring together players in the trade and finance sectors spanning across agriculture to manufacturing, insurance, construction, import and export, as well as foreign businesses from across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas .
The conference is expected to be opened with a keynote address by the Secretary-General of UNCTAD, Dr Mukhisa Kituyi. The opening day will also see addresses by reputable personalities on trade opportunities for local traders from Ghana. The session will point out both new and other specific existing opportunities that have not been taken advantage of but have been available. There will also be a special address by Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen on how the private sector can drive government’s One District, One Factory agenda.
The second day will focus strictly on how to finance the opportunities exposed on the first day. It will have finance experts from several institutions dealing specifically with how funds can be accessed to take advantage of the opportunities brought to the fore from the first day.
The third day will see an exhibition where both international and local exhibitors will showcase their products and services to the potential buyers and sellers.
