The â€œGerman African Business Summit (GABS)â€ would be held in Accra from 11-13 February 2019.
Mr Christoph Retzlaff, the German Ambassador to Ghana, said up to 750 leaders, decision-makers and business representatives from business and politics from Germany and Sub-Saharan Africa would be participating in the Accra Summit.
He said at the GABS, top business and government leaders from Germany and Sub-Saharan Africa meet every two years in Africa to discuss and promote economic relations between Europeâ€™s largest economy and the fastest-growing region in the world.
Speaking at a press conference in Accra to formally announce the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkelâ€™s visit to Ghana in August, Mr Retzlaff said GABS was Germanyâ€™s signature business event in Africa.
Mr Retzlaff said the GABS 2019 in Accra would enable German and African business interests to meet to explore economic partnerships between Germany and Sub-Saharan Africa.
He noted that the previous edition of GABS was held in Nairobi Kenya.
The GABS is organised by the Sub-Saharan Africa Initiative of German Business (SAFRI).
