The UK- Ghana Chamber of Commerce (UKGCC) and Africa Scotland Business Network (ASBN) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cross-promote each other’s organisation for intra African and international trade and relations within Ghana, Scotland and their networks across the world.
Under the MoU, UKGCC and ASBN will also work to ensure increased brand awareness, and leverage it to deliver reputational value and credibility, thus enhancing the value of their brands and those of their internal member companies.
To achieve these objectives, both organisations commit to focus on 5 key shared economies but not limited to Energy, Healthcare, Agriculture, Technology and Training Education.
Commenting on the signing, UKGCC’s Executive Director, Adjoba Kyiamah, remarked that “the UKGCC exists to further the business interests of its members and create more business opportunities in its work to promote bilateral trade between UK and Ghana.
All of our work from the establishment of the UKGCC in 2016 to date, has positioned us as the leading UK business support organisation in Ghana. We believe that this strategic partnership with ASBN will further enhance our reach, relevance, and role as a key stakeholder in international trade.
We are especially pleased with this partnership, as it affords UKGCC a foothold in Scotland and other African nations where ASBN has a direct footprint, the untapped potential they present for creating networks and connecting businesses in Ghana and Scotland”.
ASBN’s Director, Claire Alexander, added that “Africa Scotland Business Network, as a company registered in South Africa and Scotland, couldn’t be more delighted to establish an official partnership with the UK–Ghana Chamber of Commerce.
It’s been clear since our first in person engagement with Adjoba in Edinburgh in March 2022, that both organisations share mutual values, objectives and an unwavering dedication to Africa’s social and economic prosperity. A meaningful collaboration of our international networks will ultimately enhance the value offered to current and future members of both organisations.
The partnership will undoubtedly excel knowledge sharing across multiple sectors with the key aim of forging international partnerships and investments into Africa. We are excited for what the future holds”.
