The Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) on 11th August, 2022, held its second CEO’s Breakfast Meeting for the year, with focus on the manufacturing sector.
The event availed a unique opportunity for key state and private stakeholders to delve deeper into Ghana’s manufacturing sector and its vast business potential.
Owing to the disruption in value-chains and other industrial challenges, the CEO of GIPC, Mr. Yofi Grant said it has become more crucial to work collectively to find answers to problems besetting Ghana’s manufacturing sector.
He opined at the event that: “we recognize the urgent need to embrace the private sector as partners in undertaking corrective actions, that can move the country forward”, adding that “Ghana’s business potential remain enormous, and government is committed to creating an enabling environment for all investors to fully leverage the opportunities”.
Corroborating Mr. Grant’s assertion, the Head of the One District – One Factory (1D1F) initiative at the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Mr. Kofi Addo, also noted that inasmuch as the current global business landscape is fraught with some challenges, the opportunities in Ghana remain endearing. He encouraged the private sector to make optimal use of the country’s resources.
The CEO’s Breakfast Meeting is a GIPC-initiated event, organized periodically, to bring together CEOs and business moguls, as well as government authorities, to deliberate on pertinent issues affecting business and investments in Ghana.
