The World Convenes In Accra, Ghana in April 23-28, 2023

This April 23-28, 2023, the 320 World Trade Centers from 100 countries and their accompanying business delegations will convene at the 53rd World Trade Centers Association General Assembly in Accra, Ghana. This will be the first-ever General Assembly in Sub- Saharan Africa, and leaders from other countries of Africa will also be present, networking with the attendees.

The event’s theme is Towards African Economic Integration and Enhanced Global Presence, because this conference will certainly highlight and celebrate the African Continental Free Trade Agreement. “This is an ideal time for North American companies to start trading with the continent of Africa,” said Karen Gerwitz, President and CEO of the World Trade Center Denver, “The General Assembly is one of the best events to get a global perspective on trade and investment opportunities.”

Africa is on the brink of a major economic boom and therefore offers a lot of untapped opportunities for businesses in areas such as real estate, hospitality, health services, technology, energy, mining, and agricultural infrastructure. The World Trade Center Denver members are eager to collaborate with the African Chamber members to join a diverse delegation of businesses and community leaders from across North America to take advantage of this global event to expand their businesses through partnership, joint ventures, the opening of new branches, outsourcing, and market expansion.

This year's event will allow participants the opportunity to explore this great and stable country in Africa known affectionately as the ‘Gateway to Africa.’ There will be organized business tours, B2B matchmaking, receptions, a gala celebration, and excursions to explore Ghana surrounding the conference.

The WTC Denver is pleased to partner with United Airlines, which is offering discounted air travel through Dulles Airport in Washington, DC, and bonus miles if you join this delegation. If interested in learning more about this opportunity, please tell us more about your interest in attending. It will definitely be a wonderful experience for participants.

The time to network is now, so join the World Trade Center in Denver and the African Chamber of Commerce Colorado for this historic experience from April 23rd to 28th for an unforgettable experience. More details can be found at
