The third edition of the Made-in-Ghana Bazaar, an initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, has been announced in Accra, with about 1,000 local exhibitors participating in the event.
The bazaar, which is usually organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the Ghana Export Promotion Centre, the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, and other institutions, is aimed at promoting the manufacture, export, and sale and use of made-in-Ghana products. This year’s event is on the theme “Promoting made-in-Ghana goods and services for economic prosperity and draws participants from the diplomatic community and some foreign missions.

Addressing the media at the launch of the event, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, said the made-in-Ghana bazaar was one of the strategies the ministry had adopted to support the private sector to promote their products internationally, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises. She stressed the need to improve the production, processing, packaging and distribution chains of Ghanaian products.

The expected outcome is gauged at boosting exports, creating more jobs, and strengthening our currency through increased earnings in foreign exchange. It is the ministry’s ultimate wish to contribute to economic growth.
The three-day event, which has been revived after a three-year break, is scheduled to start on May 23–25, 2024. The event will see exhibitors display a wide range of products, including shoes, bags, beverages, jewellery, clothes and cosmetics that were exclusively made in the country.
