Accra – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Vice President of African Affairs and President of the U.S.-Africa Business Center Scott Eisner today met with His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo, the newly elected President of Ghana, to discuss ways to strengthen the bilateral economic relationship between the U.S. and Ghana.

“Ghana has proven its capacity to be a strong economic partner for American businesses. A robust economic relationship benefits both of our countries, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is committed to promoting commercial ties in Ghana and throughout Africa,” said Eisner.

Eisner led a business mission to Ghana to meet with the president and other senior government officials, including the CEO of the Ghana Investment and Promotion Center Yoofi Grant. In addition to the U.S.-Ghana bilateral relationship, the business mission also addressed ways the U.S.-Africa Business Center can support further cooperation with the broader Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
