President Nana Akufo-Addo is expected to officially open the 1st Wakanda One City of Return Trade Expo at Welcome Dinner on December 3, 2021 in Accra.
The opening ceremony will officially open the 10-day event that will be held at Ridge Royal Hotel in Cape Coast from December 3 to 13, 2021.
The 1st Wakanda One City of Return Trade Expo is an initiative of the African Diaspora Development Institute (ADDI) and its partners under the leadership of Her Excellency, Ambassador Arikana Chihombori-Quao.
The Expo, which brings together over 160 delegates from the United States of America, the Ghanaian business community, government departments, trade associations, traditional authorities, and the media, seeks to highlight viable, ready-to-go, opportunities for local businesses and share investment opportunities that will assist in wealth creation.
According to the organisers, the business discussions will focus on areas such as Engineering & Real Estate; Healthcare & education; Agriculture; Small business; Digital Technology; Finance and banking; Mining and Minerals; Legal & media; Trade and investment; and Culture & tourism.
The Expo comprises conferences, trade tours, panel discussions, and exhibitions.
It forms part of the Wakanda City of Return project which was launched a year ago by the African Diaspora Development Institute (ADDI), Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly, and other local partners including Pelicape Group and Adepa Investment.
The project is expected to create about 5,000 direct and indirect jobs and open opportunities in Africa and beyond to boost tourism development.
