The Sports Ministry will create a Ghana trade hub in Brazil  during the World Cup in Brazil to project the investment potential of the country.

The Minister for Youth and Sports,Elvis Afriyie Ankrah says there will be a collaborative effort with the Ghana Investment Promotion Center(GIPC) and the Ministry of Tourism to set up the hub.

“This is the third time we are going to the World Cup and we are building on the knowledge and experience of the last two.The World Cup is the biggest platform one can use to market a country so beyond the football we want to create a Ghanaian village to market Ghana's  investment potential and project the country in a positive light.”

The Government is determined to maximise the potential of a World Cup presence and has mandated the Free Zones Board as well to look into how it can help with the creation of the hub.
