The Spanish-Ghana Chamber of Commerce (SGCC) has held a fashion show as part of its maiden Spanish Week celebrations.
The Spanish Week seeks to highlight fashion, music, food, drinks, dance and tales from Spain.
The week-long celebration, which was launched on Monday, October 7, is slated to come to a close on October 11.
Speaking at the fashion show, Nadim Ghanem, president of SGCC, averred that the maiden edition of the Spanish Week was to throw light on Spanish fashion in Ghana.
The commerce has formed partnerships with top fashion brands such as Zara, Encuentro and Mayoral.
The General Secretary of the Chamber, Ingrid Asensio Ramos, told NEWS-ONE that in a bid to establish, promote and strengthen the Spanish presence in Ghana, the SGCC had decided to dedicate an entire week to engage with stakeholders, investors and economic promoters in Ghana.
“Establishing the bilateral relationship between Ghana and Spain is our main aim for the celebration,” she said.
Although the SGCC is less than a year old, the participation of members from other countries, she stated, had been immense.
The SGCC also hopes to contribute to the tourism sector by organising a forum sometime in December this year, as well hold business talks with other stakeholders in both markets.
Present at the fashion show were Alicia Rico Perez del Pugar, the Spanish Ambassador to Ghana, and a host of dignitaries from the Spanish community in Ghana.
Some events to climax the Spanish week include an ultimate networking cocktail slated for October 8, a food and beverages market on October 9, among others.
The SGCC is a private association which seeks to promote and increase bilateral relationships between Spain and Ghana, offering a wide range of services to support companies in both markets.
The main objective of the association is to promote relationships between Ghana and Spain, increase the Spanish presence in Ghana, both economically and socially, as well as improve commercial trade in both directions.
