Richmond Leaders Greet Ghana’s Trade Delegation

Former Richmond Mayor Irma Anderson, Oakland Attorney John Burris and Former City Councilman Jim Mc Millan.

Last week an impressive list of East Bay sponsors hosted a reception for a group of high ranking Ghanaians visiting the California East Bay to develop opportunities in the world’s fastest growing economy.
The Ghanaians visit provided an opportunity for individuals attending workshops to interact, explore and discuss topics of mutual interest such as Oil and Gas Management, Green Technology, IT Hardware/Software, Physical Infrastructure, Finance and Health.
Over 300 guests attended the reception including Congresswoman Barbara Lee the Honorable Willie Brown, Dr. Ruth Love, and distinguished actor Richard Gant.
The height of the reception were the remarks by the Ghana delegates regarding their extraordinary opportunity to explore in four days business opportunities and ways to build sustainable business partnerships with business owners, real estate developers, trade and investment companies and public utilities agencies.
