Trade Mission to Ghana & Nigeria

MedGyn had the privilege of being invited by the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity to participate in the Trade Mission to Ghana & Nigeria. This comprehensive multi-sector trade event encompassed agriculture, construction and infrastructure, energy, automotive, and healthcare. Nigeria, with its young and rapidly growing population, eagerly embraced the opportunity to host such events that promote economic stimulus for the country and its citizens. These ongoing efforts to boost Nigeria’s economic growth also strengthen cross-sector partnerships on a global scale. 


Both Nigeria and Ghana enjoy political stability, creating favorable conditions for growth and collaboration. Ghana, like Nigeria, boasts one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. With its abundant natural resources, Ghana presents significant trade prospects across similar sectors. Additionally, Ghana’s youthful population, with over half under 25 years old, underscores the need for a diverse industrial market. 


The American Chamber of Commerce in Ghana facilitated networking sessions and a reception for U.S. and Ghanaian members, fostering valuable conversations and potential long-term partnerships.

 Mohammad Farahmand, MedGyn’s Director of Sales for the Middle East & Africa, attended the conference and really enjoyed the experience. “It was a pleasure to connect with numerous professionals from the West African markets during this trade mission. This endeavor has paved the way for exciting future collaborations,” Mohammad explained. “We are truly grateful to have been invited by the Illinois Department of Commerce,” he added. MedGyn offers high-quality, innovative products for women’s healthcare worldwide.
