The event will not only highlight past contributions but will focus on present contributions as well, whiles furthering the advocacy for political, economic, and all other systems and policies that would facilitate future contributions by the Ghanaian Diaspora.
And in light of the fourth centennial commemoration of the arrival of enslaved Africans in the western hemisphere, this event recognizes that the Ghanaian Diaspora extends beyond Ghanaian citizens or nationals and their immediate relatives, but also include others outside the borders of Ghana, with roots to, or a strong vested interest in the country.
