At a press briefing held at AH Hotel in Accra on Thursday, November 2, Okoe Vanderpuije introduced the investors to the media adding that more than 100 others will be joining them after the delegation is done exploring investment avenues in the country.

Jesse Tyson, President National Black MBA Association and leader of the delegation said they will be looking for opportunities in the agriculture, health, IT and manufacturing sectors.

The six-member delegation to Ghana will engage the private and government officials in series of meetings to explore investment opportunities between Ghana and USA.
