Al-Haji Ali Mohammed, Vice President of Ghana and his accompanying delegation visited yesterday the Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry yesterday. He was received by Abdurrahman Al-Mutaiwee, DCCI Director General and Sultan Lootah, Director of Business Promotion Department at the Chamber.

The Vice President was escorted by Rasheed Bawa, the Ghanaian newly-appointed ambassador to the GCC countries based in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, Selevety Parker Allotey, Ghanaian Charge d'Affaires to the GCC countries, according to a press release.

During the meeting, bilateral ties were discussed between Dubai and Ghana and ways of developing and enhancing these ties were also discussed. On the top of the agenda was the UAE Trade Exhibition in Ghana to be held in April 2006 and holding of a Roadshow in Senegal about trading and investment opportunities in Dubai.

"We as a matter of fact had selected Ghana and Senegal in Africa thanks to the political and economic stability the two countries enjoy, which would constitute an important factor in setting up trading, economic and investment projects. Being there, would be a useful experience and unique economic event towards opening new markets for UAE products and services. The exhibition would provide businessmen and investors with an excellent opportunity for developing their trading ties with their counterparts in Ghana and Senegal, and a benchmark targeting the Western African markets whose population is more than 250 million people," said Al-Mutaiwee.

Al-Mutaiwee briefed his Ghanaian guest on the key role the DCCI plays in enhancing the economic movement in Dubai and supporting the businessmen's competitiveness in their drive to developing their activities, and providing investors with opportunities to enable them to effectively communicate with the business circles locally, regionally and internationally thanks to Dubai's strategic location as a commercial centre playing a vital role and pushing the companies operating in Dubai to enter huge and promising markets regionally and internationally. He also briefed him on the support the DCCI provides regarding guiding members on best ways to broaden their businesses and investments.

The Vice President of Ghana expressed his country's interest in enhancing economic and trading ties with the UAE, in general and Dubai, in particular through holding such exhibitions in Ghana due to the strategic location Ghana enjoys in Africa.

He welcomed the UAE Trade Exhibition to be held in Ghana and offered all types of support to make this event a success. It would constitute a great opportunity for the UAE companies to access key African markets, like Nigeria, Mali Benin Republic, Senegal and Ivory Coast he said.

"We are fully committed to benefiting from the leading experience of DCCI and the ways it adopts in servicing its members and enhancing the trade exchange between Dubai and different countries, and broadening the investment opportunities in all trading, economic and real estate sectors in order for us to push forward the trade and economic movement and enhance growth at all levels to ensure more development and progress in our country," he said.

Abdurrahman Al-Mutaiwee, DCCI Director General, expressed the Chamber's readiness to contribute to the development of the related-departments' performance, and exchange information in trade and economy so as to strengthen and broaden the bilateral ties between Dubai and Ghana.

It is worth noting that the non-oil trade between Dubai and Ghana in 2004 was around Dh267 million, where Dubai's re-exports to Ghana were around Dh202.6 million, while Dubai's imports from Ghana were AED46.2 million in the same year. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
