President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo left Accra on Monday (7 March) at the head of Ghana’s delegation to Dubai Expo 2020. The event was postponed from its original start date in October 2020 in response to the worldwide spread of COVID.
The expo aims to forge new partnerships and inspire ground-breaking solutions across critical industries worldwide. It also seeks to raise awareness about the worldwide challenges that mankind faces. It provides many possibilities for networking and the promotion of international connections.
Individual pavilions have been set up at Expo 2020, with countries exhibiting their unique cultures and technical innovations.
President Akufo-Addo will deliver a statement on “Ghana Day”, scheduled for 8 March 2022, as well as hold talks on matters of mutual interest with the crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan; participate in a Business Forum under the auspices of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC); and hold meetings with other investors interested in doing business in Ghana.
The president was accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, the Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen, as well as officials of the Office of the President and Foreign Ministry.
Akufo-Addo is scheduled to return to Ghana on Thursday (10 March).
