BACKGROUND

The African continent is experiencing sustainable economic growth more specifically is the nation Ghana which is well-endowed with natural resources.

The Netherlands and Ghana  shares a memorable diplomatic and business relations and have maintained this mutual trade value since 300 years ago.  Ghana is one of the Netherlands’ principal trading partners in Sub-Saharan Africa  and it is well-positioned as a regional entry and exit point on trade routes. The Netherlands is one of Ghana’s main export countries, particularly for cocoa. Conversely, Ghana is the third most important export destination in Sub-Saharan Africa for Dutch products. Many Dutch civil society organisations and several local authorities have links with Ghana.

In order to unlock this potential, investments and innovations are required. The organizers of the Netherland Ghana Business Fair 2017 plan to connect the Dutch and Ghanaian businesses together. We intend to showcase diverse sectors of business in order to facilitate and  exchange ideas thereby strengthening  our relations. Our focus is to target companies in Ghana and the Netherlands in the following sectors: Agro Business, ICT/Mobile Solutions, Housing/Real Estate, Water/Wash and Renewable Energy. It is through this combination of business development activities and opportunities that the Netherlands Ghana business fair is essential to stimulate business ventures and innovation between the two countries.
