The Ghana investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) has formally launched the 10th Africa Investment Forum slated for 3rd and 4th of April, this year.
The two-day forum will be organised under the theme: “Partnering with ECOWAS to accelerate investment into the sub-region”.
The forum seeks to provide an unprecedented opportunity for senior policy-makers, corporate executives, investors and investment promotion agencies to meet and exchange views and information through a series of sessions, networking and social exchange programs.
The forum will be organised by the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) in collaboration with the Commonwealth Business Council (CBC) and the ECOWAS Commission.
Speaking to Journalists last week in Accra, Chief Executive Officer of the GIPC, George Aboagye, assured investors the enormous potentials Ghana had to offer them.
“With a robust commodities sector and a stable political environment, along with a dynamic financial industry and an improving fiscal record, our country has enormous potential to offer investors in Africa”.
“This event comes in the wake of Africa’s transformed image as a preferred destination for investment and the soaring number of emerging market funds with African interests” said Mr. Aboagye.
Dignitaries expected at the Forum will include, His Excellency Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, President of the Republic of Ghana who will formally open the forum together with some Heads of State from the ECOWAS sub-region and other Commonwealth Member Countries as well as investors across the world.
