Following the successes enjoyed by the Labacorp group of companies, the chairman of the group, Bako Ambianda in a bid to help replicate similar successes in his homeland Africa established the Africa Trade and Investment Services (ATIGS) in 2018.

ATIGS has chapters and/or country representatives in more than 40 countries including, Ghana, Canada, Angola, Kenya, China, Singapore, Nigeria, Gambia, Algeria, Côte d’Ivoire, Portugal, Morocco, UAE, and Japan, among others.
ATIGS Group, Inc (Africa Trade & Investment Global Services) is a trade promotion, project facilitation and development company that provides business development services to companies looking to expand or establish their business operations in Africa.
After Ghana’s success in winning the bid to host the Africa Continental free trade Area, it is revealed that a number of investors are looking for strategies and opportunities to establish partnerships in Ghana to serve the larger African market. It is in this light, that ATIGS is organizing a prestigious summit in Ghana to identify bankable business interests and astute business men and women in Ghana to present them to their chain of investors across the world in ATIGS Dubai 2020.
Speaking to the chairman of ATIGS worldwide, Mr Bako Ambianda who is the main speaker of this prestigious event to be held in Ghana, he stated that he’s thrilled at the opportunity to expand ATIGS operations in Ghana. Asked whether there will be one on one meetings with him and his team, he stated that, by his checks with the ATIGS country representatives in Ghana, a number of business men and women have already bought event tickets that affords them the opportunity to have a one on one sit down with his team and that is exactly what they are going to do.
“I have often heard the saying that Ghana is the gateway to Africa, and as an international business person, I believe this saying was really confirmed following Ghana’s successful bid to host the secretariat of the Africa Continental free trade area. All eyes are on Ghana and at ATIGS, we are ready to raise the next international business giants right here in Africa, and I am convinced Ghana and Ghanaians have what it takes to be part of this vision. Till date ATIGS has facilitated over 400 million US dollars in trade, we expect to raise the figure to 10 billion dollars in the coming years” he stated.
The ATIGS Ghana Advantage seminar is scheduled for Saturday September 28th, 2019 at Movenpic Hotel Accra.
