The SDG’s Advisory Unit of the Office of the President, in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), has launched a competition dubbed “Champions of Trade for the SDGs”.

The competition is a unique opportunity for stakeholders especially young people and women from the 16 regions of Ghana to submit innovative ideas for making the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) agreement a people’s movement towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The “Champions of Trade for the SDGs” competition is seeking ideas from young Ghanaian Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Agripreneurs and Startups, that will help activate grassroots sensitization, understanding and participation in AfCFTA.
