China strengthens West Africa trade relations with second China Trade Week

China-based Exhibition Company, MIE Events is set to organise the second ever China Trade Week in Ghana in an attempt to strengthen trade relations between West African subregion and China.

The event is expected to take place at the Kempinski Hotel from 7th-9th May.

The exhibition will showcase more high-end Chinese manufacturers looking to develop long-term relations with local buyers. The companies are across various industry sectors such as Chemicals, Food & Beverage, Construction Materials, Outdoor Goods, Daily Necessities, Furniture, PPP, Home Electricals & Electronics, Clothing & Textiles, Television & Satellite, Baby Products and Personal Care amongst others.

China Trade Week (CTW) is organised by MIE Events, a Dubai and China-based Exhibition Company, who is thrilled to be bringing back comprehensive China-focused event to the West Africa region. The event was already had success in Kenya, the United Arab Emirates and Iran, and since the flagship Ghana event last year had also successfully introduced Ethiopia, South Africa and Morocco to the CTW portfolio in 2017.

Speaking during the announcement, MIE Events Managing Director, Mr David Wang said: "Our first China Trade Week in Ghana exceeded our expectations in terms of number of visitors to the tradeshow, the quality of the speakers and the interest in the conference. This year we are bringing more exhibitors and extending the event from 2 days to 3 days, so we hope the local business community will be eager to come again and see what’s new".

As a business event, CTW Ghana is looking for professional buyers in retail, wholesale, distribution and import/export, as well as entrepreneurs who have been thinking about starting trade relations with China. For visitors who have not had any experience working with China before and don’t know where to start, a conference has been developed over the three days to give visitors background information about China and how to effectively trade with China. Last year saw 3 former Ambassadors to China sharing their experiences plus business owners who already have successful business relationships with Chinese. The calibre of speakers for 2018 will remain high.

Michelle Meyrick, International Events Director, commented: "Due to the immense popularity of the first event we had queues for the onsite registration. We highly recommend downloading the free ‘CTW app’ to register for free and skip the queues. The app also gives buyers direct connectivity with the exhibitors before, during and after the event, and provides full information about the products, conference schedule and speakers."
