According to the CEO of GIPC Yofi Grant, Ghana was better positioned to hone investments in the subregion having been adjudged the best place for investments in West Africa over the past few years.

He said that the government recognizes the private sector as the engine of growth for the Ghanaian economy and as such, initiated projects that will enhance the country’s industrialization drive, sighting the flagship One District One Factory initiative and Industrial parks as real examples.

Also, the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the Summit will help mainstream conversations on the country’s FDI and ensure that investments coming into the country are fully onboarded.

“There’s a need to have a critical look at Ghana’s promising FDI figures, and create opportunities for the various stakeholders in the value chain to benefit,” he added.

The main event scheduled for September 6th, 2021, will feature a host of high-profile personalities, including; the President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E Nana Akufo-Addo Dankwa, the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen, Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, and the CEO of the GIPC, Yofi Grant.
