You Are Invited

The Government of Ghana in partnership with the International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank Group, extended invitations to the G20 Compact with Africa Germany Ghana Investors Forum, which was held simultaneously in Accra and Berlin on Thursday, 4 October 2018.

Only a few weeks before the Heads of State meeting in Berlin on the Compact with Africa, the aim was to place a special focus on Ghana. Discussions at the Investors Forum focused on three themes – Automotive Industry, Agriculture and Financial Technology.
The Forum took a novel and exciting approach as a dual continent event, simultaneously connected by state-of-the-art technology. The event facilitated fruitful discussions highlighting opportunities for doing business in Ghana.
It was a pleasure to welcome guests from Accra and Berlin.
