Ghana EXIM Bank Launches Free Tuesday Market to Boost SMEs

As the nation prepares for the 67th National Independence Day celebration in the Eastern Region, the management of the Ghana Export-Import Bank (GEXIM) has announced it will be hosting “Freedom Market” on Tuesday 5 March, 2024.

“Freedom Market,” a special edition of the bank’s popular Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) Fair dubbed Tuesday Market to commemorate this year’s edition of Ghana’s independence celebration, is scheduled at the forecourt of the Africa Trade House (next to the British Council in Accra).

The fair will witness an exhibition of very unique, quality, affordable and authentic Made-In-Ghana products ranging from food and ingredients, beverages, skin and beauty care products, textiles, apparel, garments, leather footwear, slippers and many others.

Commenting on the “Freedom Market”, the deputy chief executive officer responsible for banking, Rosemary Beryl Archer, indicated that it is important to promote and showcase the very best of Ghanaian made products while we celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s independence from colonial rule.

“GEXIM has been championing the repositioning of the Ghanaian economy into an export-led one and it has become very necessary in the light of our quest to drive economic development to encourage Ghanaians to consume locally manufactured products and services.”

“The fair provides a platform for the promotion of indigenous Ghanaian products to the general public. When we patronise Ghanaian-made products, it will help to sustain Ghanaian businesses as well as create jobs for  Ghanaians,” she emphasised.

The fair not only creates awareness and promotes Ghanaian products but also serves as an avenue for businesses to generate revenue from sales of their products to the general public.

Over the years, GEXIM has introduced innovative ways to create avenues for revenue generation for the bank’s clients as well as other producers of Made-In-Ghana products.
