African Airshow to open investment opportunities in Ghana

Posted 13 March 2017 · Add Comment

The first ever African Airshow would create awareness within Africa and the Global Aviation Industry about the investment opportunities in Ghana, said Cecelia Abena Dapaah, minister of aviation.

At a press briefing on Thursday March 2, Elvis Hugh Tamakloe, director of the Ministry of Aviation, who read the address on her behalf, said the show would also provide a fruitful forum from which stakeholders could interact with prospective investors.

He said it would also ensure stakeholders were in tune with the dynamics of the industry where they could share their experiences, findings and new investments. 

Tamakloe said the objective of the Ministry was to establish Ghana as a transportation hub within the West African sub-region.

He said Ghana was the ideal choice because Ghana’s democracy and political stability had gained recognition and the success of the aviation industry could give access to 250 million people in ECOWAS and one billion in Africa.

The three-day Show, which is being organised by 4M Events, host of the France Air Expo and the Abu Dhabi Air Expo, would take place from October 24 to 26, 2017.

It would be hosted by the Ghana Airports Company.

Didier Mary, general manager of 4M events said « One of the aims of the African Airshow was to highlight the importance of the infrastructure within aviation industry including airport procurement, supplies and solutions and technology. 

He also stated that Air show would attract key aviation industry players to discover first-hand the range of new technologies and solutions that the industry has to offer. 

Didier said the African Air show is an ideal platform to discover the latest technologies and learn about emerging trends and networking with key decision-makers as well as acquire first-hand knowledge about the industry’s present and future growth.
