The Government Investment Promotion Centre said in 2018 that Ghana is ready and well positioned to be the best business centre in the ECOWAS sub-region.

Chief Executive Officer for the Centre, Yofi Grant said in an interview that, “by the end of the first-quarter, GIPC should be reporting to the presidency what their observations are and whether the investment down here has been strengthened because I think that without any equivocation in my mind, without any doubt, we can become the best place to do business in Africa."

“As for being the [business] hub for West Africa, I think we are so well-positioned to do it”.

He further added that “it will be a travesty of justice if we don’t become so in the next three years. It’s a process, it’s not a one-day thing and we have done several stakeholder engagements and we get views from different sectors as well.”
