A former two-term Member of Parliament for Ketu South, former Minister of State, Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey, who is the current General Secretary of his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has also served the nation as both the Deputy Finance Minister and the Minister for Agriculture. He qualifies as best placed to represent Ghana at this auspicious trade and investment event.
