The Project consultant and a representative from the Ghana Football Association for the maiden Football Business Expo, Mr Ebo Appiah says the project is not just an exhibition and a trade fair about Ghana but it is targeted at connecting people in contributing their quota in developing Ghana.
The event which will be held in Houston, TX, United States of America from June 28 and 29 was launched on Monday.
The Ghana Football Association in partnership with RGG Sports, LLC and its local partners, the Ghana-Houston Chamber of Commerce in Houston, TX and the Ghanaian American Journal in Hartford, CT is organizing the Expo to attract investment to Ghana during the two international soccer engagements.
“We are here to connect, life is about people, the GFBE seeks to illuminate all about the people of Ghana,” said Ebo Appiah
“We want the world to know that Ghana is more than a football nation, our nations doors are opened for business.
He added that “We at that Ghana Football Association believe is time to use the attention we attract during our international engagements and help contribute our quota in developing our dear nation.
“We are using what we have and together with our partners here in the United States and Ghana namely.”
The GFA aims to use this unique opportunity as a vehicle to empower the African girl child through education to take advantage of the opportunities available to build the continent.
It would also facilitate the GFA’s goal of building a sports academy in Ghana for girls and distribute 100,000 match specific jerseys to all girls’ schools and orphanages in Ghana.
