World Trade Center for Ghana
The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), in collaboration with Strategic African Securities (SAS), have established the first World Trade Centre (WTC) in Accra.
The building, to be known officially as the World Trade Centre, Accra, is a 15-storey imposing edifice sited near the Cedi House and shares a wall with the British Council. Mr. Kofi Boateng, the Chief Operating Officer of the World Trade Centre Association (WTCA), in an interview with journalists said, the WTC is a major step towards making the country “a business nerve center” to receive world class investors and tourists, making Ghana the first country, south of the Sahara, to have an operational WTC although some countries such as Nigeria already have a license to build one. He pointed out that the vision of the WTCA, is to build a respected and valued brand that will be represented in all parts of the world by World Trade Centers to be interconnected for the successful promotion of international trade investment, noting that Accra now joins 330 cities and 97 countries worldwide where WTC is being operationalized.
