WACEE ’14 – West Africa’s flagship event in RE & environmental protection featuring official German pavilion
(Heidelberg / Accra) Ghana is one of the “top export markets 2014” says the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. This results from the above-average growth and a stable business environment. A professional market entry to Ghana and West Africa is paved by WACEE ’14 – the 3rd West African Clean Energy & Environment Exhibition & Conference. For the very first time in 2014, WACEE will feature an official “made in Germany”-pavilion with 17 German exhibitors in addition to an information stand. AHK Ghana and fairtrade now organise the third edition of WACEE on 3-5 November 2014, again at the Accra International Conference Centre.
The German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and Germany Trade & Invest have identified six countries – which should be marked as high priority by the German export economy. State Secretary Stefan Kapferer: “Ghana is characterized by an above-average growth, a positive development in the core sectors of the German middle class and a stable business environment. Great business opportunities open up in the areas of environmental technology, waste and water management and engineering.”
