The Ghanaian delegation attending the World Telecom Standardisation Assembly (ITUWTSA-20) in Geneva, Switzerland is leaving nothing to chance at the conference, showing off the country’s rich culture and digital innovations.

The Ghanaian delegation is made up of investors, innovators, project and decision-makers from the ICT ecosystem and led by the Communications and Digitalisation Minister Ursula Owusu-Ekuful.

Dressed beautifully in their ‘kente’ and ‘fugu’ the Ghanaian delegation hosted a launch reception which afforded them the opportunity to woo other delegates and decision-makers ahead of a critical vote on the membership of the ITU Council.
