The Business Council for Africa and Invest In Africa will be holding a joint event, to highlight Ghana’s future prospects and opportunities for the private sector to thrive. Ghana is the second largest West African economy, ranking 13 out of 54 for Sustainable Economic Opportunity according to the 2015 Mo Ibrahim index report. Yet Ghana’s economy is expected to slow down for the fourth consecutive year to an estimated 3.9% growth rate, owing to a severe energy crisis, unsustainable domestic and external debt burdens. Ghana and the UK have a long history of bilateral trade relationship and Ghana is seeking to deepen and improve the business environment to promote the growth and development of the private sector.
The keynote speaker will be Ms Mawuena Trebarh CEO of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, appointed in February 2013 by H.E. President John Mahama. Ms Mawuena Trebarh will discuss Ghana’s strategy as a competitive destination for international markets and how Public-Private Partnerships could develop future infrastructure projects.
