The Meridian-Marshalls Holdings [MMH], parent company of Marshalls, has secured lucrative partnerships with three Colombian businesses for various academic projects. Several other proposals are also at the analysis stage. Dr. Tetteh Nettey, Group President of the MMH, made this known while addressing a Business Breakfast Meeting organized by the Head of the Colombian Consulate to Ghana, Her Excellency Claudia Turbay, at her official residence in Accra.

Dr. Nettey was one of the few speakers at the Breakfast meeting, made up of Chief Executive Officers and high ranking representatives of businesses in Ghana and Colombia. The gathering was part of the shared efforts by the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre [GIPC] and the Association of Ghanaian Industries [AGI] on one hand, and the Colombian Consulate on the other, to boost business relationships between the two countries.

In his address, Dr. Nettey applauded all who had contributed to the strengthening of trade partnerships between Ghanaian and Colombian businesses, especially praising the vision of the Columbian Consulate and the Ghanaian Investment Promotion Centre. He elaborated that the initiative had massively generated several opportunities in foreign partnerships and investments for businesses of both countries.

Dr. Nettey stated, “Marshalls, for example, is one institution that will forever be in the debt of this initiative. Last year we were invited to participate in the fair for the first time, and after holding about sixteen [16] meetings in two days, I am happy to announce that Marshalls have already secured three lucrative partnerships with Colombian businesses and as I speak, several other proposals are still under consideration. These partnerships will go a long way to boost several projects that we are currently undertaken in the educational sector.” He made this revelation to buttress the point of how the EXPOCAMACOL Fair had been of huge benefit to Marshalls.

It would be recalled that in August 2016, under the auspices of PROCOLOMBIA, Colombia’s equivalent of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre [GIPC], and the Columbian Consulate in Ghana, Marshalls was invited to participate in one of South America’s most famed Business Fairs- the EXPOCAMACOL. The EXPOCAMACOL fair is a business event that unites international businesses to create a platform for fostering business partnerships, securing investment opportunities and trading business services.

Marshalls was the only academic institution from Ghana to participate in the Fair, and the institution’s developmental projects, vision and proposition appealed to several Colombian businesses. Marshalls have been able to secure at least three exciting proposals subsequently from the Fair while others are still at the negotiation table.

The securing of these partnerships are set to contribute significantly to Marshalls’ efforts to establish Africa’s most distinguished learning centre. Work has already begun on Marshalls’ 110-acre lakefront property to build a state-of-the-art World Class Learning centre, equipped with a silicon plant to boost education and innovation. The project is one of several being pursued by Marshalls in its quest to become a hub for education, innovation and leadership in Africa.
