The manufacturing sector continues to build momentum in West Africa and Ghana remains a central driver in local development and international investment. With its stable political landscape, budding entrepreneurial population and sustainable power infrastructure, it is ‘Open for Business’ according to the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC).
It’s with this background of industrial opportunities that Afrocet Montgomery has launched its packaging, printing, plastics and processing portfolio exhibition into Accra. Propak Ghana will take place at the Grand Arena, ICC from the 6th – 8th June 2023 and is expecting to welcome more than 100 brands and 2,500 visitors through the doors of the purpose built venue.
