GEXIM to host ‘Tuesday Market’ on December 1
As the nation prepares for this year’s edition of the annual National Farmers’ Day celebration, a day set aside to recognise and reward hard-working farmers across the nation, the Management of Ghana Exim Bank (GEXIM) has announced Thursday December 1, 2022, as the date for the next edition of its popular Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) Fair dubbed: “Tuesday Market”.
A special edition dubbed: “Tuesday Market on Thursday”, the Fair is scheduled to take place at the premises of the World Trade Centre in Accra between the hours of 10:00am to 6:00pm and will witness an exhibition of affordable, authentic and quality Made-In-Ghana products.
Ms. Rosemary Beryl Archer, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer responsible for Banking indicated that “Tuesday Market” has become very necessary in the light of our current economic challenges when Ghanaians are encouraged to consume locally manufactured products and services.
“Tuesday Market provides a platform for the promotion of indigenous Ghanaian products to the general public. In addition to displaying the various Made-In-Ghana products, we are using the platform to drive the campaign for Ghanaians to patronise Ghanaian made products, this will help to sustain Ghanaian businesses as well as create jobs for Ghanaians. This will eventually aid in solving our economic challenges and development of our economy”, she added.
On her part, Mrs. Nana Akyaa Obeng-Adiyiah. Deputy CEO, Finance and Administration, highlighted that the Fair does not only create awareness and promotes Ghanaian products but serves as an avenue for the businesses to generate revenue from sales of their products to the general public.
She added that “as a Development and Policy Bank, it is important for us to explore innovative approaches to create avenues for revenue generation for the Bank’s clients as well as other producers of Made-In-Ghana products. Tuesday Market provides the platform for producers of Made-In-Ghana products to sell their products to members of the general public in addition to creating awareness about their products”.
During the “Tuesday Market” on December 1, 2022, patrons of the Fair can also visit the GEXIM MIG Town, located on the Ground Floor of the Africa Trade House, Ridge, Accra opened from Mondays to Fridays between the hours of 9:00am and 6:00pm.
