Speaking during the ‘Doing Business in Ghana Series 2021’ webinar organized by the Embassy of Ghana in Brussels,she stressed that this opportunity also gives investors enough room to explore.
“The potential of the AfCFTA to uncover new areas of investments suggests that it will attract a more diverse range of investors comprising multinationals, individuals, start-ups, joint ventures among others thus making the continental market highly competitive,” she said.
The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA)’ webinar was attended by the likes of Yofi Grant, the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Investment Promotion Center (GIPC), and Akwasi Agyeman, the CEO of the Ghana Tourism Authority.
Also, Dr. Fareed Arthur, Head, National AfCFTA Coordination Office at the Ministry of Trade and Industry, and Dr. Mike Oquaye Jnr, CEO of the Ghana Free Zones Authority, participated in the discussions.
“Ghana as host of the AfCFTA Secretariat seeks to lead by example in creating an economic environment conducive for investment. This webinar will, therefore, take participants through the emerging opportunities in Ghana under the AfCFTA and the peculiar incentives available for prospective investors who choose to invest in Ghana,” she said.
