Euromoney to drive more investments, trade into Ghanaian economy

Euromoney, the world’s leading organiser of conferences for cross-border investment and capital markets for governments, banks and financial institutions will host its first major conference in Ghana February 2012.

The conference, Euromoney Ghana Finance and Investment Conference, will bring together policymakers, businessmen, financiers and key overseas investors. Date for the event is February 7-8, 2012 in Accra.

“This high-level conference will highlight Ghana’s attractions as a Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) destination,” said Euromoney on its website.

Euromoney noted that Ghana is well recognised as one of the most stable countries in Africa, adding, notwithstanding the recent global economic crisis, the country’s economy has experienced a long period of growth over the last decade.

“Now with the new oil inflows – a discovery which certainly drew attention to the country on the world stage – how will Ghana move forward? Ghana without doubt has the potential to become a very attractive partner for trade and investment across a multitude of sectors. This event will facilitate investment, trade and networking opportunities between Ghana and the rest of the world,” said the organiser.

Economists and business leaders investing in Ghana will also share their experiences, it said.

Ghana’s Minister of Finance, Dr Kwabena Duffour, Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, Bank of Ghana Governor and Mark Mobius, Executive Chairman, Templeton Emerging Markets Group, Franklin Templeton Investments are the keynote speakers.

The Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning is a partner of the event.
