Tunisia and Ghana boost ties for strategic investments
A delegation of Tunisian investors is in Ghana to explore business opportunities from different sectors including Agric-food, information technology, construction and engineering, state-run news agency reported.
According to Deputy Trade Minister, Carlos Ahenkorah, the move will allow Tunisia to manifest its business prospects in Ghana to complement the West-African nation’s industrialization agenda.
Mr. Ahenkorah urged the Tunisian businesses to take advantage of the wide range of business opportunities in the country and increase their presence.
Speaking at a forum organized by the Ghana Chamber of Commerce and Industry, President of the Tunisian trade mission, Bassem Loukil, stated investors are willing to tap into government’s Ghana beyond aid agenda.
In his words, Tunisia intends to intensify its economic and trade cooperation with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) with special emphasis on trade and investment promotion.
Earlier this week, the government of Tunisia has proposed to commence direct daily flights by Air Tunis to Accra to deepen the bilateral air service agreement signed between Tunisia and Ghana.
As a first step, the Tunisian authorities have requested the Ministry of Aviation and its allied agencies to visit Tunisia and meet with Aviation officials to discuss technical issues concerning the proposal.
