A newly formed government, under the direction of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, is determined to turn the economy around by enforcing fiscal discipline, curb inflation and interest rates, and invest in private sector driven growth. With inflation on the decline and the Cedi stabilized year to date, surveys show a positive outlook for business sentiment in the country. According to the World Bank, Ghana’s economic growth is expected to accelerate, spurred by improvements in both the oil and non-oil sectors.
To mark the new era of investments, Ghana Investment Summit 2017, produced in partnership with the Ministry of Finance and the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, will take place in the capital city of Accra on August 20-22 at the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City.
The summit will bring together a global network of entrepreneurs, executives and investors, for two days of networking and investment match-making sessions. Industry thought leaders will share their views on high-growth sectors in the region ranging from energy, agriculture, and consumer goods, to the fast growing FinTech and E-Commerce business. We will also take an in-depth look at threats to the landscape, in the face of technological, social media and cyber security related concerns.
