Organisers of the Ghana International Trade and Finance Conference (GITFIC) have agreed on a new partnership that will see Ethiopia hosting the next edition of the forum.

The first-ever Ethio-Ghana International Conference on Trade and Finance is an event that is expected to pull participants from far and wide to discuss business.

According to Selasi Kofi Ackom, Chief Executive Officer of the Rescue Shipping and Investment Agency Limited stated, “This upcoming conference as always will create the platform for business VVIPs, VIP’s, CEO’s, MD’s, Owners, etc. to meet and discuss business and investments opportunities between the two countries.”

In addition to facilitating trade between these two countries, he said, “All businesses in Ghana are encouraged to sign up for next year’s conference in Addis. The Addis market is three times that of Ghana. The youth makes up 70 percent of the total populations in Ethiopia. This means that companies and businesses can triple their revenue and profit margin if they extend their investments into the Ethiopian Market.”

Ethiopia has much potential to continue to be a sought-after investment destination in East Africa by foreign investors.
