Unlocking Ghana’s Potential: 3rd Made-in-Ghana Bazaar Commences!”

The 3rd Made-in-Ghana Bazaar, a flagship program of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, kicked off on May 23, 2024, at the Accra International Conference Centre. This year’s event, themed “Promoting Made-in-Ghana Goods and Services for Economic Prosperity,” aims to showcase local products and services on the global stage.

Minister for Trade and Industry, Hon. Kobina Tahir Hammond, commended the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration for organizing the event, which he believes will play a crucial role in developing the local economy and preserving the country’s productive sectors for future generations. He encouraged the public to support Made-in-Ghana goods and services, emphasizing that every purchase made at the bazaar contributes to sustaining livelihoods, promoting productivity, and fostering sustainability in communities.

Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Hon. Mavis Nkansah-Boadu, explained that the bazaar aims to facilitate the entry of Ghanaian products and services into foreign markets through Ghana’s Missions abroad and Diplomatic Missions accredited to Ghana. This, she said, will support the growth of Small and Medium-size Enterprises (SMEs) by providing them with the necessary impetus to expand into the international market, including the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).

Ambassador Ramses J. Cleland, Chief Director for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, expressed hope that the three-day bazaar will provide a platform for expanding the goals and objectives of the event towards economic development and provide adequate support to transform Ghana’s small and medium-scale sector.

The bazaar features a wide range of Made-in-Ghana goods and services, live performances of Made-in-Ghana music, and panel discussions on topics such as “The Changing Nature of Economic Diplomacy – A Private Sector Perspective” and “Equipping SMEs to take Advantage of the AfCFTA.” The event continues with side events, including a panel discussion on “Projecting Ghana’s Creative Arts Industry for Sustainable Development” and live performances of authentic Ghanaian music.
