The strong foundation of any country’s growth, besides other things, lies in bilateral trade with other countries. In line with this and with the agenda of deepening ties with the African countries on a fast-track, specifically those between India and Ghana, a few events were held in the recent past, in the capital city of Delhi. These events provided a platform for healthy and engaging interaction between Ghanian delegates and the business fraternity especially that of Punjab.
The trade between India and Ghana has constantly scaled upwards since the last several years, as Ghana regularly exports cashew nuts, metalifers ores and metal scrap, wood and wood products, pearls, precious and semi-precious stones, oil seeds and spices and imports pharmaceutical products, cotton yarn, fabrics, machinery and instruments from India. The Special guest here was the Minister of State for Water Resources and Water Conservation / Irrigation, Hon. Shri Vijay Shivtare. He expressed his sincere desire to share his in-depth knowledge and expertise in the field of hydro power, water and irrigation facilities, promoting agricultural output.
Ghana invites technology transfer and investments from India in various fields starting with clean renewal energy, Solar Power, Agriculture, Water and Irrigation Solutions, Cocoa processing, Palm Oil, Jute, Pharmaceuticals, Textile Manufacturing, Packing, Fruit/food Processing, Low Cost Housing and many more sectors for Ghana’s growth.
Here’s to many collaborations and fruitful cooperation in varied fields!
