The webinar was attended by the Deputy Director of Investor Services of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC), Mrs. Evelyn A.E. Nyarko, and the Technical Advisor from the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MoTI), Dr. John-Hawkins Asiedu.
The webinar highlighted the importance of the AITS including benefits for participants and sponsors. The Africa Industrial Trade Show is a trade promotion event that aims to offer a distinctive platform for regional and international businesses to meet and network to forge long-term partnerships.

The AITS also seeks to proffer brand awareness and trade advantages to businesses, entrepreneurs, and investors locally and internationally from agro-processing, pharmaceuticals, metal fabrication, garment, and textiles industries. This includes a plethora of opportunities for participants to tap from. There are sponsorship and parentship opportunities for interested persons who seek to play such roles in the event as well.
During the webinar, the Deputy Director of Investor Services commended LMI Holdings for this initiative; emphasizing that it was a great opportunity and thus, encouraged all members present to take advantage of the event. She also iterated that the GIPC would leverage the AITS to attract more investors into the country.
