The Export-Import Bank (GEXIM) has hosted a Gambian Delegation at its head office at the Africa Trade House in Accra.
Modou Lamin Sowe, Director of Investment Promotion and Facilitation of the Gambian Investment and Export Promotion Agency (GiEPA) led the six-member delegation made up of officials of GiEPA and representatives of the Gambian Ministry of Finance.
The delegation was on a two-day study tour of selected strategic government agencies to understudy their management and operations.
The delegation had a full-day programme at the bank, which involved the strategic presentation of key departments to get a deeper insight into the bank’s operation as well as its innovative approaches at championing the government of Ghana’s agenda to transform the Ghanaian economy into an export-led onee.
Receiving the delegation, Rosemary Beryl Archer, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana expressed the excitement of the Bank’s Executive Management to be hosting the delegation to share with them the bank’s processes, major milestones, initiatives, award-winning projects as well as some of its challenges in executing its mandate.
“We are very excited to have you here with us today and as it is always said, we need to learn from best practices. At GEXIM, we have been focused on helping the government to create industries and ensure the narrative is changed by reducing our dependence on imports and rather increasing production for local consumption and exports. Earlier this year, one of our novel initiatives, Tuesday Market, an SME fair for our financed SMEs and other Ghanaian manufacturers to showcase and sell their products whilst harnessing their export potential was adjudged the Best SME Initiative in Africa at the African Union SME Awards held in Cairo, Egypt”, she added.
Various departmental heads of the bank took members of the delegation through presentations before touring the Bank’s Knowledge Centre and the GEXIM MiG Town, a one-stop shop for everything Made –In-Ghana located at the ground floor of the Africa Trade House.
They later visited the bank’s “Tuesday Market” held at the car park of the World Trade Centre in commemoration of the 38th National Farmers’ Day celebration.
