Agenda

WHAT’S ON THE AGENDA AT GIS 2017?

 

Topics and discussions at GIS 2017 will focus on key growth industries in Ghana: Energy/Infrastructure, Agro-business, Consumer Goods & Services, and Finance & Technology. These industries are among the government’s key areas of focus for economic development.

 

The summit will feature C-suite executives from some of the largest global firms, venture capitalists, private equity fund managers, investment bankers, and other business leaders from across the globe, including New York, London and Singapore. Attendees will get the rare opportunity to network with potential investors and gain unprecedented access to key officials charged with executing the government’s economic development agenda.

 

The Summit agenda includes two-days of intense, match-making sessions (along with social networking events) for the purposes of introducing local businesses to investors. A unique list of growth-oriented Ghanaian businesses will be invited to make presentations before investors.
