Africa is now ready for business - Mahama

President Mahama says Africa is now a better place to do business than before when conflicts ravaged several parts of the continent.

According to him, there are relatively fewer wars and conflicts on the Continent as pertained in the past.

Participating in a special Africa-Japan TICAD roundtable at the ongoing Davos World Economic Forum, President Mahama said Africa is very fertile for foreign investment.

He observed that Japan is becoming a development partner for Africa.

President Mahama added that Ghana is working effectively to achieve major development through its partnership with Japan.

The special Africa-Japan TICAD roundtable is a follow-up to the June 2013 Tokyo International Conference on African Development.

It brought together African leaders, ministers, heads of international organizations and business leaders to identify critical challenges and redefine the role of Japan in Africa's development.
