NABA’s breakfast meeting with Ghanaian minister

Minister Kyerematen will be one of the speakers at the meeting

A breakfast meeting on investment opportunities in Ghana with the country’s Trade and Industry Minster Alan Kyerematen will be held this Thursday in Oslo, Norway’s capital.

The event, is organized by the Norwegian African Business Association (NABA) and KPMG, a global network of professional firms providing audit, tax and advisory services. And will be held from 8 to 10 am at KPMG Sorkedalsveien 6, only for NABA members, according to information on NABA’s website.

Minister Kyerematen will be one on a speakers’ list which include Christy Lorgen, director of corporate intellignce at KPMG and Jochun Horn, who will present NABA member Rendeavour’s experiences with the two Ghana-based urban development projects in which it has investments.

The line-up of NABA activities continues with an energy business mission to Uganda and Rwanda to understand both countries’ markets and get to know the industry players better from 11 to 16th this month, an article on the website said.

Norwegian Energy Partners, in cooperation with the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Kampala, Uganda, and NABA put together the trip with the confidence that the two African countries “have a huge potential when it comes to power and the countries are ripe for renewable energy investments.”

The Norwegian hydropower and solar power industry is encouraged to join the trip to the two countries.

“The trip to Uganda is organised in conjunction with the Future Energy Uganda conference and showcase that will be held from the 13th to the 14th of September in Kampala. We have booked a 12m² Norwegian pavilion at a good location close to the lunch area at the exhibition. This is an excellent way of marking a Norwegian presence and we hope that so many Norwegian companies as possible will be a part of the Norwegian pavilion.

“After the conference on the 14th, the journey continues to Kigali, Rwanda, where we on the 15th of March will organise the same type of renewable energy seminar and networking reception as we did in Uganda. We´ll also try to organise a site visit on the 16th of September,” the article noted.

Meanwhile, NABA will also host a business breakfast update on Ethiopia to provide information to its members and other interested companies about a Norwegian business mission scheduled for Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital, in November.

Speakers and presentations will come from Yara International, Oslo Analytica/Bjørknes University College, Norwegian Ministry of Trade and Industry, Nordic Approach, Mester Grønn AS and the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO).
