In his address, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GIPC, Yofi Grant said: “We celebrate those who have toiled and against all odds built significant and fantastic businesses. We recognize that building a private business in Ghana is like running up a hill backwards and so for those of you who have survived, you definitely need to be celebrated.”

Speaking on behalf of the president of Ghana as keynote speaker, Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo noted that government is very keen on growing the private sector in order to promote development in the country. He said government is focused on four thematic ways; Macroeconomic stability and debt sustainability, Infrastructural development, Accelerated industrial development and Agricultural transformation to accelerate economic growth in the country.

He encouraged all the companies present to assist government achieve its goal of increasing the economic level of the nation as well as creating more jobs.

“You have a responsibility to help us develop this economy, to help us generate employment to move Ghana from a lower middle-income country to proper middle-income country and then become a developed country in the final analysis. I am happy that we are celebrating the best of the best.

The type of visitors our president is getting these days is a clear manifestation that times are changing and changing well for this economy of ours. But no matter how much people favor us, we need players to make it work to benefit from all this good will, we need captains of industry to make use of this good will to develop this county. That is why I am personally interested in the top 100 companies in this country,” he said.
