They are the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Council for Scientific and Industrial (GNCCI) and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Ghana.

Dubbed: “the Industrial Innovation Fair” is a collective commitment of the two institutions to leverage the power of research, science, and technology to propel Ghana's industries to new heights of innovation, productivity, and global competitiveness.

The Fair will serve as a platform to foster collaboration, showcase cutting-edge research, and drive the development and adoption of innovative solutions that meet the specific needs of our industries.

It comes at a times when the country is currently facing serious financial crisis, therefore, it is imperative that businesses are not just prudent with their scarce resources but also leverage research and technology to meet the changing needs of the market.

Industrialised economy

Signing on behalf of the Chamber in a short ceremony in Accra on Tuesday, the President of GNCCI, Clement Osei Amoako, said “Ghana's industrial sector holds tremendous potential, and it is our responsibility to leverage it for sustainable growth, job creation, and overall economic prosperity. 

It is for this reason, that I am here today filled with enthusiasm and optimism as we gather here to mark a significant milestone in our journey toward an industrialised economy.”

He said research marked an important step towards bridging the gap between the needs of Ghanaian industries and the vast potential of research and innovation.

He said “through this Fair, we aim to facilitate the transfer of research findings and technological advancements into practical applications that directly address the challenges faced by our industries. 

By bridging the gap between Ghanaian industry needs and the vast potential of research, science and technology, we can unlock unprecedented opportunities for growth, sustainability, and prosperity.”

Bridging gap

The Director-General for CSIR, Professor Paul Pinnock Bosu, who signed on behalf of the Council, explained that research marked an important step towards bridging the gap between the needs of our Ghanaian industries and the vast potential of research and innovation.

He said ‘‘the collaboration was significant in the sense that we are partnering a whole range of industry that we have here in Ghana and we are excited about it’’.

He added that the fair would bring together industry players, researchers, policymakers, and key stakeholders to discuss, share knowledge and explore beneficial partnerships to create a platform that would address the immediate challenges faced by industries and also lay the foundation for a thriving ecosystem of innovation in the long run.
