The Company’s Redevelopment Project which covers an area of about 156 acres, when completed, would create a well-coordinated and well-managed world-class multi-purpose international Trade Fair Centre.

It will attract global trade and investment into the country and position Ghana as a regional trade fair hub. The Trade Fair will also generate additional tax revenue from businesses and generate an estimated 10,000 jobs from planning, construction, and post-construction management.

Members of the Board include the Chief of La, the Chief Executive of the Company (Dr. Agnes Adu), and Madam Gloria Annoh-Wiafe. The others are Mr. Tobby Amankwah, Hon Elvis Morris Donkor, Mrs. Ruth O. Addison, Madam Cecilia Gambrah and Mr. Hubert Sevor
