The Ghana Football Business Expo has been launched in Accra on Wednesday at the World Trade Center.
The Accra launch comes after the USA launch which happened in Houston, USA last week as part of the Ghana-Houston Chamber of Commerce's 3rd Annual OTC Dinner Reception.
In attendance were New Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah, Madam Tyrnena Holley, Trade Head of US Commercial Service, Deputy Youth and Sports Minister, Hon Pius Enam Hadzide and Hon. Ibrahim Mohammed Awal, Minister of Business Development as well as CEO of World Trade Center Mr, Kwame Doni.
The event will be held a day prior to our international friendlies on 28 June against Mexico and 01 July against the United States in Hartford, CT .
The expo seeks to introduce businesses in America to the tremendous opportunities in Ghana.
The GFA aims to use this unique opportunity as a vehicle to empower the African girl child through education to take advantage of the opportunities available to build the continent.
It would also facilitate the GFA’s goal of building a sports academy in Ghana for girls and distribute 100,000 match specific jerseys to all girls’ schools and orphanages in Ghana.
