Overview

The Ghana Chamber of Commerce Guyana was commissioned on Monday, 22nd May, 2023 in Queenstown, in the heart of Georgetown, Guyana, by Ghana’s Trade & Industry Minister, Kobina Tahir Hammond, MP, assisted by Guyana’s Minister for Public Works, Bishop Juan Edghill, MP.

The Ghana Chamber of Commerce has a primary mission of promoting trade, investment, human resource engagement and economic cooperation between Ghana and the Caribbean, with Guyana being the focal hub.

One core fundamental principle of the Ghana Chamber of Commerce is for our members to be deliberate in working in Guyana to build local capacity. We encourage joint ventures and other ways which ensures that Ghanaian entities operating in Guyana work in partnership with Guyanese companies. This is to ensure that, at least, Ghanaian companies come to Guyana with value, to create value and share value with their Guyanese partners in a win-win arrangement.
The Chamber counts scores of major Ghanaian and international companies on its books in various areas, including Fintec, Finance, Oil & Gas, Mining, Power, Real Estate Development, Construction, Agriculture, Manufacturing, Waste Management, and Commodities Trading. It specialises in linking contractors with funding and opportunities. With the ability to arrange very competitive funding, including ECA facilities, through its strategic partnership with ALA Strategic Consult and clients, the Ghana Chamber of Commerce, connects capital to opportunities. We help Guyanese companies to build international partnerships with expertise and funding to help deliver on projects in Guyana. Being the first and only Africa-focused Chamber of Commerce in the Caribbean, we offer support to businesses from Africa, working in Guyana or seeking opportunities in Guyana. We provide information on opportunities, offer advice on regulatory matters, market intelligence and industry outlooks, as well as organise workshops and training on industry knowledge and exchange programmes for skills transfer.

The President of the Chamber is Mr. Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a Ghana and UK-trained corporate lawyer, co-founder and senior partner of Africa Legal Associates, and founder and chairman of the African Prosperity Network, an African-Union supported institution, which organises the annual Africa Prosperity Dialogues, a platform for Africa’s business and political leaders, dedicated to deepening trade and investments across a fast-integrating African continent of 1.4 billion people. The African Union has adopted CARICOM as its 6th region.

The Ghana Chamber of Commerce Guyana is located on the 3rd Floor of 301 Church and New Garden Street, Queenstown, Georgetown, Guyana.
