The Ghana Digital Centers Limited (GDCL) have embarked on an aggressive hunt for investors for its digital centre redevelopment project.
This follows a visit to the Ericsson headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden led by the Chief Executive Officer of the centre, some board members of the centre accompanied by officials from the Ministry of Communication and Digitalization.
The visit provided an avenue for the Ghanaian delegation and officials of the Ericsson headquarters to familiarize and explore business avenues between the two.
Speaking to the media after the meeting with Ericsson, Mr. Baah Agyemang indicated that “our meeting was to see how Ericsson can work with the digital center redevelopment project.”
The Digital Centre redevelopment project which is expected to begin in November this year will witness MTN sponsor the construction of the state-of-the-art, innovation centre.
The investment promotion mission to Finland, Denmark and Sweden created an avenue for Ghana’s delegation to showcase the country’s vast business potential and pursue opportunities for bilateral trade and investments.
The delegation met and networked with senior government officials, captains of industry, and potential investors in the three countries.
Delegates were offered the opportunity to pitch bankable projects to potentially yield partnerships and investments in their respective countries.
On his part, Mikael Halen, Government and Industry Relations Manager-Ericsson, said his outfit welcomes the delegation and the potential to build partnerships.
During a power point presentation, the Ericsson representative took the Ghanaian officials through the projects and projections of Ericsson.
He hoped that the prospects emanating from their discussion with the Ghanaian delegation, especially from GDCL would yield benefits for the two outfits.
