West Africa - Ghana - Danida

Invitation to participate in the coming Africa network meeting

Axelborg, Monday 7 May 2018, 10.00-13.00

Denmark has special ties with Ghana, which were enhanced by the visit of HM the Queen and a large business delegation to Accra last autumn. It is therefore with great pleasure we welcome the new Ghanaian Ambassador to Denmark H.E Mrs. Amerley Ollennu Awua-Asamoa.

Danida has provided programmes for financing business and sustainable development in developing countries through many years. Deputy Head of Division, Lis Rosenholm, will present the current Danida strategy and programmes focusing on insights from Africa.

Doing business in Ghana is about love to the people and hard work. Board chairman Mogens Mathiasen will by short stories tell about what it is really about, when you run a business with livestock in Ghana. West African Fish Ltd is producing Tilapia for local consumption in the Volta Delta.
