Outgoing US Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie Sullivan, has said that the introduction of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) will position Ghana for more economic gains within the Sub-Saharan Africa region.

According to her, Ghana should capitalise on the new economic synergies and opportunities to expand its economy.

Speaking at the 2021 American Chamber of Commerce Ghana Thanksgiving Dinner and Awards Night on the theme “Celebrating U.S-Ghana Partnership; Unlocking New Opportunities for Growth”, Mrs. Sullivan said AfCFTA will provide many opportunities for women entrepreneurs.

“I believe the AfCFTA will surely lead to exciting new opportunities for women entrepreneurs and business women”, she added.
