Leading Canadian medical consumer platform, Cannvas MedTech, along with 7 other leaders of the global cannabis market, will engage in a discussion on the socioeconomic impact of cannabis legalization in and across Africa with regional governmental leaders such as the Deputy Ministers of Health from Liberia (Norwu Howard) and members of the Zimbabwean Ministries.

“I am looking forward to attending New Frontier Data’s Socio-Economic Study symposium in May,” states the Honorable Norwu Howard, Deputy Minister of Health of Liberia, “and hearing about their work for the Government of Zimbabwe and Africa. The Office of the Ministry of Health of Liberia stands ready to learn more about the fiscal impact on the issues that may benefit Liberia’s overall Healthcare system and our pro-poor agenda.”

“We are pleased to join New Frontier Data and the InterCannAlliance in this groundbreaking event. We are eager to support African nations and global cannabis stakeholders as they develop ways to serve the growing medical cannabis community and provide resources for continuous patient education,” says Shawn Moniz, CEO of Cannvas MedTech.

“As we can see from the recent announcement of Uganda positioning to export medical cannabis to Canada and Germany, it is clear that Africa will begin to play an increasingly important role in the import and export of cannabis and/or hemp throughout Europe and possibly even North America,” added Giadha Aguirre de Carcer, Founder and CEO of New Frontier Data.
