The Ghana Investment and Opportunities Summit which is being organised by the Ghana High Commission, UK in partnership with the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre has been scheduled for June 2023 in London.

The event which is the third in the series is aimed at bringing together delegates from the international investor community, venture capitalists and private equity fund managers amongst others for in- depth discussions and the exploration of viable bankable investment opportunities within various sectors of the Ghanaian economy as well as matching local businesses with international partners.

This year’s summit is set to take place over two days at the London Hilton on Park Lane on the theme “Post Covid Economic Recovery: Opportunities for the Investor”

The keynote speaker for this year’s summit will be the Vice President of Ghana, H.E Dr Mahamudu Bawumia who will lead a delegation of industry captains and business leaders to showcase why Ghana should be the number one choice for investors to consider doing business in Africa.

The key sectors of focus for the summit will be, Finance, Digitalisation, Agriculture, Energy, Manufacturing, Tourism and Diaspora Mobilisation.

As Ghana is working to regain its position as being one of Africa’s fastest-growing economies, it remains one of the best places for doing business in West Africa according to the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Report 2020. According to the EY African Attractiveness Index, Ghana is one of the most resilient economies in West Africa.

With its political stability, conducive business environment, committed and progressive government-private sector participation, adaptable workforce, excellent sea and air connections to Europe and the USA, transparent regulations, no frills business processes and a thriving private sector, Ghana, home to the headquarters of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCTFA) is an excellent hub for investors seeking to do business in Africa.

Having grappled with the detrimental impacts of the global pandemic just like every other country, Ghana’s focus on maintaining a sustainable economy is now more important than ever and one of the key ways of achieving this is to ensure a consistent attraction of foreign direct investment.

As Ghana continues to make giant strides to solidify its status as the force to reckon with in Africa, it welcomes global investors to be a part of this journey and take advantage of the abundance of investment opportunities.

The third edition of the GHIOS is expected to attract over eight hundred delegates, two hundred corporate industry captains, about forty speakers, over hundred million deals to be sealed amongst Business-to-Business sessions.

The summit seeks to target international investors, various corporate organisations, government institutions as well as the general public in Ghana and Europe and the diaspora.
