The Director of Diaspora Relations at the Office of the President in Ghana Mr. Akwasi Ababio has promised a warm welcome to all Ghanaian students in the Diaspora who would choose to do their national service or internship in Ghana.

He argued that energetic and vibrant young Ghanaians should be encouraged in order to help them join in development building in their mother land. Mr. Ababio added that as a means of motivation by the government of Ghana, it has been suggested that the students’ project related services in Ghana would be competitive for an enviable prestigious presidential award in Ghana!

This was announced by the Director when he delivered a speech at the launching of the Ghanaian Canadian Chamber of Commerce (GCCC) and the Diaspora Engagement Think Tank (DETT) by the Ghanaian-Canadian Association of Ontario (GCAO). The theme for the function was: “Breaking Barriers Through Business, Innovation, and Service”

The GCCC is a non-profit, voluntary organization based in Toronto Canada, that supports professionals and the business community seeking to invest in Ghana or engage in business with Ghanaians through networking, partnership, and education.

It aims to build capacity, stimulate interest and create numerous opportunities for Ghanaians in Canada in the area of business.
