Trade Ministry denies reports of unfair charges at 2017 Ghana Expatriate Business Awards


The Ministry of Trade and Industry has debunked speculations that it charged expatriates between 25,000 and 100,000 dollars to offer them seats close to President Akufo Addo at the recently held Ghana Expatriate Business Awards (GEBA).

A statement signed by team leader of the Ministry’s Communications and Advocacy Unit, Prince Boakye-Boateng said the major organisers of the awards, Millennium Excellence Foundation came up with a sponsorship programme, with different sponsorship categories and packages with their attendant benefits.

It said the Ministry’s only involvement was to write letters to introduce the Millennium Excellence Foundation to sponsors whilst the Foundation prepared the sponsorship package kits and presented it to potential sponsors at a later date.

The statement said the same presidential table had the MD of Tigo/Airtel, Roshi Motman, Amar Hari of IPMC, former president Jerry John Rawlings and the Minster of Trade Alan Kyerematen, who did not pay a pesewa to be seated on the Presidential Table”.
