Ghana’s high commissioner to the United Kingdom Papa Owusu-Ankomah recently urged Ghanaian garment and textile manufacturers to take advantage of the opportunities in the UK and European markets following Brexit. He said this at an event hosted by the high commission to introduce Ghanaian garment manufacturers to potential buyers in the region.

The event was organised by Ethical Apparel Africa, a UK-based garment sourcing and development organisation in collaboration with Ghana’s Ministry of Trade and Industry through their UK office and supported by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), according to a report in Ghanaian newspaper.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Boris Johnson met 16 African leaders early this week at the first UK-Africa Investment Summit in London. Johnson told the African leaders and top company executives that he wants to make the United Kingdom their investment partner of choice.

The British government's export agency reports providing $2.6 billion in financing for UK company exports to Africa in the past two years.
