GUBA expo aims to promote trade between Ghana and UK

EXPO: GUBA will hold a three-day event to promote trade between the UK and Ghana this summer

AN EXPO to promote trade between Ghana and UK will be held in London this summer.

The GUBA trade expo, which will be held in Greenwich between the 15th and 17th June, will aim to improve trade relations between the two countries and provide a platform for produce and mainly small and medium-sized business from Africa.

At the three-day event, GUBA will be championing African-inspired products and introducing them to British consumers. There will also be opportunities for larger organisations to explore investment prospects.

A GUBA Enterprise spokesperson said: “GUBA Enterprise is positively expectant of strengthened socio-economic ties between Ghana and the United Kingdom.”

GUBA’s key aim is to facilitate closer ties between Ghana and the UK via the GUBA Foundation which undertakes charitable initiatives to address some of the most entrenched health and social care issues affecting the Ghanaian community.

The foundation works to provide awareness and guidance to families create strong connections and encourage community cohesion ensuring that these individuals have access to the services they require.

On Tuesday GUBA facilitated a meeting between the president of Ghana and the mayor of London.

A GUBA spokesperson said: “GUBA Enterprise were delighted to coordinate the London-Accra Commonwealth twinning meeting, between the president of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo, the mayor of Accra, Ghana, Mohammed Adjei Sowah, and the mayor of London Sadiq Khan, along with other senior officials.

“The meeting focused on developing even closer links between Accra and London and strengthening economic, cultural and community links between the two capitals and throughout Ghana and the United Kingdom.”

Following the expo in June, GUBA will celebrate Ghanaian and British talent at 2018 GUBA awards. The annual awards ceremony and a special conference will take place across the 13th and 14th July.

Akufo-Addo and Sowah are in London for this week’s Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.
