GIPC signs MoU with Enterprise Mauritius
The Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) and Enterprise Mauritius have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate in capacity building and investment in both countries.
The initiative, which is aimed at building the bond between the two countries, will also explore synergies to their mutual benefit.
Mrs Mawuena Trebarh signed on behalf of GIPC as the CEO, while Mr Ken Poonoosamy signed for the Mauritius Board of Investments as the Managing Director at the 2013 Mauritius Ghana International Trade and Investment forum held in Accra last Thursday.
The session, which was organised by the Board of Investment and Enterprise Mauritius, brought about 40 entrepreneurs from Mauritius to Ghana.
It featured Mauritian entrepreneurs looking for investment opportunities in Ghana in all priority sectors including joint venture collaboration, strategic alliances, franchising and project financing.
Speaking at the forum, Mr Dev Chamroo, Chief Executive Officer of Enterprise Mauritius, the apex Investment and Trade Promotion agencies of Mauritius said the forum would provide entrepreneurs from the two countries the opportunity to share experience on investment or join hands in investment promotion that would allow Ghanaians to look at Mauritius,especially the 26 countries that they could reach from the country.
Mauritius, he said, had expertise in education and medicine, adding that the country had also diversified its industrial base over time to sea food processing and other products.
For her part, Mrs Trebarh said the collaboration between entrepreneurs in both countries would promote their development.
