The Central Regional Capital of Ghana, Cape Coast will from December 2 to 13, 2021, witness one of the biggest international trade events, Wakanda-One City of Return Trade Expo at the Ridge Royal Hotel being organized by the African Diaspora Development Institute (ADDI).

The Expo, according to organizers under the leadership of Her Excellency, Ambassador Arikana Chihombori-Quao, former Permanent Representative of the African Union Mission to the USA and Founding President of the African Diaspora Development Institute is expected to bring over 160 delegates from the United States of America, the Ghanaian business community, government departments, trade associations, traditional authorities, and the media on a common platform to “highlight viable, ready-to-go, opportunities for local businesses and share investment opportunities that will assist in wealth creation.”

The event which forms part of the Wakanda City of Return Project, “will specifically focus on linking potential investors, facilitating sector presentations as a form of discovering areas of interest, Supporting Women and Youth programming through partnership development with local businesses and government, and developing a more comprehensive action plan based upon the results of the Expo.”

In total, over 300 delegates are expected to attend the ten-day event which includes conferences, exhibitions, Trade tours, business-to-business Meetings, a panel discussion among others.

The Wakanda City of Return project which was launched a year ago by the African Diaspora Development Institute (ADDI), Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly, and other local partners Pelicape Group and Adepa Investment is expected to create about 5,000 direct and indirect jobs and open opportunities in Africa and beyond to boost tourism development.

About the African Diaspora Development Institute:
The African Diaspora Development Institute was born out of the desire to bring Africa to the world and the world to Africa. There currently is no one resource to easily find information about Africa. ADDI aims to become that resource.

We have come to the realization that the current status of the African economy is due to the mass exodus of the African Diaspora out of Africa. The exodus began with the loss of Africa’s children through slavery 400 years ago, followed by the recent migrants who left Africa in search of greener pastures or running away from famine and wars.

The children of Africa have ended up in North America, Europe, and Asia. African Heads of State are calling on all people of African Descent (African Diaspora) to come back home and build the Africa we want.
