Energy Minister to speak at APSCA 2023


The Minister for Energy, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has confirmed his participation as one of the Keynote Speakers for the 4th Africa Public sector Conference & Awards scheduled to be held in Nairobi, Kenya, from September 4th to 8th.

Dr. Prempeh will be addressing Renewable Energy for Sustainable Development, using Ghana’s energy sector as a case-study.

Ghana has made significant headway in establishing a competitive natural gas sector by focusing on key projects that aim to fully exploit the country’s resources, rapidly increase power generation, and decrease heavy fuel imports – which has revitalised Ghana’s promising natural gas industry.

The minister will be sharing best practices on achieving efficiency in the public sector space.

APSCA will be held on the Africa Climate Week’s side-lines from September 4th to 8th at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre, Nairobi, Kenya

Themed Toward a Digitised, Green and Resilient Economy’, APSCA 2023 will bring together stakeholders and senior leaders in Africa’s public sector who are leading innovation alongside leading private businesses offering innovative solutions to the public sector, to discuss and share insights on their role toward a sustainable economy across Africa.

Africa’s largest gathering of public and private sector leaders will also create a platform for mobilising climate finance, business partnerships and investment deals on climate change.

APSCA 2023 will explore digital trends, innovative ideas, government policies relating to digital economy, clean energy, climate change, and best practices transforming service delivery and shaping the next-generation public sector across Africa

Africa’s public sector must be increasingly innovative to respond effectively to the complex challenges facing society now and in the future. As governments strive to balance priorities and the allocation of scarce resources, new approaches are needed.

Mr. Akin Naphtal, Group Executive Publisher for Public Sector Global Magazine – organiser of the thought-provoking event, noted that the public sector’s role in the economic development of every nation is crucial.

“The development of infrastructure and provision of basic services lies in the public domain. Societies and nations cannot develop themselves unless supported and controlled by strong state machinery,” he said.

APSCA 2023 will also feature a gala night that honours and recognises outstanding public sector agencies and ministries, and individuals in various capacities of government who have demonstrated excellence and championed transformation and innovation in their respective fields.  It will lift the veil on Africa’s Public Sector leaders and institutions which have showcased excellence in policy innovation and shown exceptional leadership at various levels of governance. The gala night will also shine the spotlight on private sector businesses collaborating with government and transforming communities; and businesses with sustainability strategies, supporting the transition to a more climate-resilient, lower carbon and sustainable socially inclusive economy

Other confirmed speakers include: Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed Awal, Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture; Felix Koske, Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service, State House; Nana Kwesi Agyekum Dwamena, Head, Office of the Head of Civil Service, Ghana; Aisha Jumwa Katana, Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Public Service, Gender and Affirmative Action; and Mr. Amos N.
