The Minister for Trade and Industry, Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, has revealed plans by the government to set up a Trade Centre in Turkey to market Ghanaian-made products in the country.

Speaking at the opening of the inaugural Turkish Fair in Accra on Wednesday he expressed his optimism that the trade relationship between Ghana and Turkey would grow exponentially in coming years.

He also urged Turkish companies to partner directly with Ghanaian businesses and not have to rely on ‘middlemen’ to market the local products in the country.
