On Tuesday, 23rd October, 2018, Vice President Dr. Bawumia was Guest Speaker at the Ghana Investment and Opportunities Summit 2018 in London, United Kingdom, a platform put together by the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre and the Ghana High Commission in the UK and bringing together captains of industry from across the world as well as potential investors and members of the Ghanaian community in the UK.
Vice President Dr. Bawumia encouraged the investor community in the United Kingdom to explore the many business opportunities available in Ghana, particularly as the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government works towards achieving a Ghana Beyond Aid and the UK explores its future beyond Brexit.
Vice President Dr. Bawumia continued, “For us in Ghana, Public-Private Partnerships are emerging vehicles of investment in urban infrastructure such as power generation, transmission, and distribution, urban water systems, housing and transportation (rail and vehicular)”.
“The conventional social expectations that these are the remit of governments alone are giving way to innovative public-private partnerships”.
The government of President Akufo-Addo is open to business, and we will continue to engage with the business community to explore the many exciting investment opportunities in Ghana, Vice President Dr. Bawumia added.
