On this day, Tuesday 2 March 2021, it is our great honour to officially welcome the Republic of Ghana to The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business.
Ghana is at the heart of the largest free trade area in the world measured by both geography and economic growth prospects. The High Commission in Ottawa has been an active participant in Chamber activities for several years and joins a number of leading African economies in advancing Canada-Africa trade and investment.
'It is only fitting that Ghana, the first country in Sub-Saharan Africa to gain political independence, has joined the Chamber in the same year that the African Continental Free Trade Secretariat based in Accra, Ghana - charged with accelerating Africa's economic independence - starts operations.'
- Sebastian Spio-Garbrah, Chair of the Board
The Ag. Head of Mission of the Ghana High Commission in Ottawa, Mr. Mawutor N.K. Alifo, expressed delight in the admission of Ghana (represented by its Mission) as a country member of the Chamber. I pledge my delegation’s commitment to collaborate with other African diplomatic missions and the Canadian business community to work with the Chamber through numerous platforms in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to move forward with the promotion of trade and investments between Africa and Canada.
'I am heartened by the fact that Ghana was admitted to the Chamber shortly after the AfCTA came into effect and days before the country’s National Day celebration on 6th March, 2021, a momentous occasion which has evolved from political emancipation 64 years ago to economic advancement today.”
- Mr. Mawutor N.K. Alifo, Ag. Head of Mission of the Ghana High Commission in Ottawa
