Ireland to enhance trade links with launch of Business Ireland Ghana

A new organisation which aims to bring together businesses in Ghana and Ireland has been launched in Accra. Business Ireland Ghana (BIG) is being set up at a time when trade between Ireland and Ghana is growing. The organisation’s members come from the established Irish business community in Ghana, companies in Ireland looking to expand into Ghana, and Ghanaian businesses with an interest in Ireland. Launching Business Ireland Ghana, the Irish Ambassador to Ghana, Nigeria and ECOWAS, Sean Hoy, said that it was an exciting time to launch the network. “This is about encouraging businesses and entrepreneurs in both Ghana and Ireland to explore the opportunities, especially at this time when the Ghanaian business community is more optimistic and the Irish government is looking to expand trade and open new markets,” he said.
