Nigeria and Ghana are set to explore more areas of business opportunities to further strengthen relations between both countries.
This was disclosed by the Ghanaian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Rashid Bawa, during an interview when he received a business delegation from Ghana in Abuja.
Bawa said the delegation from the Secondi-Takoradi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (STCCI) had visited the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry and proceeded to Abuja to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
“This is the first time that we have a regional chamber of commerce from Ghana coming into Nigeria to network with the various chambers here in the federation.
“The delegation met with the Lagos Chamber and they had fruitful discussions and agreed on various areas that will strengthen both chambers and therefore promote business between the two countries.
“The first assignment when the delegation arrived Abuja was to sign a Memorandum of Understanding between the Vice-President of NACCIMA and the Chairman of Secondi-Takoradi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (STCCI).
“Of course, it brings closer these two chambers and it promotes networking among them as a body and also introduces their various businessmen to the business opportunities that exist between the two countries.
“By so doing, it will strengthen the economic opportunities between both countries,” Bawa said.
