AGI and Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council
AGI, The Association of Ghana Industries and Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate as institutional strategic partners in creating enabling platforms which will benefit businesses among member states.
The MoU will also help attract high quality investments, promote industrial and inclusive growth for employment creation, formalizing and deepening the level of bilateral cooperation between AGI and CWEIC.
The strategic partnership will, again, focus on creating business opportunities for AGI members to get access to intra-Commonwealth trade and investment, as well as promote joint ventures and partnerships between Ghanaian industrialists and their counterparts within the Commonwealth.
Another benefit of the partnership is that it will ensure transfer of technology, innovation, technical skill development for wealth creation and reduce unemployment, particularly in the Ghanaian industrial sector.
CWEIC is the apex organization representing Private Sector businesses within the 52-member states of the Commonwealth, a population of 2.3 billion, with a combined GDP of £6.7 trillion, all doing business in English and using a shared legal framework. The MoU was signed at the just ended Commonwealth Trade Ministers Meeting in London.
President of Association of Ghana Industries, James Asare-Adjei, signed on behalf of his members, whilst Lord Marland of Odstock, Chairman of CWEIC, also signed for his outfit in the presence of Minister of Trade and Industry Ghana, Mr Alan Kyeremanten, as well as some staff of Ghana’s High Commission in the UK.
