YOOFI-XThe 2017 edition of the Ghana Investment Summit, a major gathering of investors, entrepreneurs and corporate executives will take place at the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City in Accra from August 20 to August 22.

Produced in partnership with the Ministry of Finance, Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) and global investment bank partners, the Summit features two days of high-level discussions on investment opportunities in key sectors, including financial services, technology, consumer goods and services, energy and Agribusiness.
The summit, which is expected to draw between 250 and 300 attendees, will also provide opportunities for one-on-one investor meetings.
The primary objectives of the Summit include showcasing Ghana as Africa’s premier investment hub, attract strategic and development funding for key government projects as well as match growth-oriented businesses with investors and partners.
Ghana’s Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta said the objectives of the Summit are “aligned with the economic agenda of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s administration, which is determined to restore Ghana’s fiscal health, boost confidence in the economy as well as drive growth and job creation across the private sector.”
“The Ministry of Finance is therefore proud to endorse the Summit,” the minister added.
More than a dozen speakers have so far confirmed to make presentations on different topics at the summit.
These include executives from Goldman Sachs, Mara Group, MTN Group, J.P. Morgan, Skadden Arps, Scania, Renaissance Capital and LeapFrog Investments.
In addition, 30 pre-screened, growth-oriented Ghanaian businesses are being invited to present before investment panels consisting of venture capitalists, private equity investors and hedge fund managers.
