Palm Oil Trade Fair and Seminar (POTS), Ghana 2017

POTS series is back!!! This time around it is held in Accra, Ghana, 23 October 2017. It is a certainly a pleasure for Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) and Malaysian Palm Oil Board ( MPOB) to offer you the opportunity to participate in this event. POTS is mooted to acknowledge the importance of Ghana as a major palm oil user and more importantly, a discerning customer of Malaysian palm oil. The event is designed to offer oils and fats players both from within and outside Ghana a platform to exchange, discuss issues affecting the trade and business networking. In this regard, POTS Ghana enables the users to receive updates on the latest development on palm oil trade. For this purpose, we have lined up a team of oils and fats industry experts to present carefully selected papers to update issues affecting the oils and fats trade. We are also honoured to have Malaysia’s Minister, Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities to deliver the keynote address and officially open POTS Ghana 2017.

We believe that the challenges and issues that are discussed during this event can be translated into business opportunities and partnerships when joint efforts are undertaken between suppliers and palm oil users to develop the trade. Besides, POTS Ghana 2017 also offers opportunities for participating companies to promote their products and image via sponsorship and exhibition. As these effective and popular marketing tools are limited, please consider taking up these opportunities to avoid disappointment.

We believe that this conference will shed insights on current issues and lead to opportunities for expanding trade. Don’t miss this opportunity. Be part of this important event by registering now. Your participation will immensely contribute towards improving the quality of the conference.
