Malta Ghana Business Forum

A Maltese trade delegation made up of 50 businesspersons is being led by TradeMalta to explore business opportunities in Ghana as part of the third edition of the Malta – Ghana Business Forum.

The Minister for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade, Ian Borg, stated that three years have passed since the last time this forum convened due to the pandemic and that now the time has come again to look with optimism towards the future of bilateral relations between the two countries, particularly in the field of trade.

Malta’s commercial delegation was made up of representatives from ICT, digitalisation, education, health, engineering and construction, manufacturing, and oil and gas industries.

Dr Borg emphasised the opportunities for growth and development within free-trade area of the African continent and claimed that this is key for building more business bridges.

TradeMalta’s Chairperson, Liz Barbaro Sant, said “With our shared goals and complementary strengths, we are confident that our nations can form a powerful partnership that will drive socio-economic growth for both of us,’’ in a report by Graphic Online.   

Malta and Ghana’s diplomatic relations started in 1974. According to Malta’s High Commission in Ghana, Malta sees the country as an increasingly important trade partner, especially in the fields of renewable energy, waste management, ICT solutions, education and training services, manufacturing and food-processing, agriculture, and construction.

The first Malta – Ghana Business Forum was held in 2019 and the second one was held in 2020.
