Nigeria and Ghana are set to explore more areas of business opportunities to further strengthen relations between both countries.
A delegation from the Secondi-Takoradi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (STCCI) had visited the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Abuja to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
According to the Ghanaian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Rashid Bawa, who received the delegation, the MoU is between STCCI and the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA).
“This is the first time that we have a regional chamber of commerce from Ghana coming into Nigeria to network with the various chambers here.The delegation met with the Lagos Chamber and agreed on various areas that will strengthen both chambers, promote business between the two countries and strengthen economic opportunities”, Bawa says.
According to NACCIMA Vice-President, Tony Ejinkeonye, both parties signed the eSilkroad MoU- a digital network linked to the Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce (SRCIC).
The SRCIC is a private initiative of the Chinese Government recruiting members of the Belt and Road initiative (BRI) aimed at creating a digital network that would connect countries, businesses, trade organisations and chambers of commerce.
The BRI is a development strategy adopted by the Chinese government involving infrastructure development and investments in 152 countries and international organisations in Africa, Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Latin America.
The business delegation is on a one-week fact-finding mission to Nigeria.
