German Investors to Test Opportunities in Ghana

The Government of Ghana in partnership with the International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank Group, will co-host a G20 Compact with Africa Germany Ghana Investors Forum on Thursday, 4 October.

According to a release by ACET and copied to Newsghana.com.gh, the Forum, which will be held simultaneously in Accra and Berlin, is aimed to introduce German investors to investment opportunities in Ghana, while facilitating a dialogue between the German private sector and Ghanaian public and private sector stakeholders.

It is expected to provide a unique platform for German corporations to explore opportunities to invest in Ghana and to partner with local business.

The Forum will take a novel approach as a dual continent event, with participants in the two capitals connected by state-of-the-art technology.

The timing of the Forum couldn’t be better, coming soon after the warm reception given to German Chancellor Angela Merkel during her visit to Ghana on 30 August. Merkel’s office has confirmed that the German Chancellor will record a video message to participants. Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is also expected to record a message.

Crucially, the Forum takes place just a few weeks before the Heads of State meeting in Berlin on the Compact with Africa.

The Accra-Berlin Forum will focus on three thematic industrial areas – Automotive Industry, Agriculture and Financial Technology.

Sector Ministers in charge of these areas and captains of industry from both countries will give keynote speeches at the Forum, which will showcase more than 100 German companies seeking to invest in Ghana.

The Germany Ghana Investors Forum is sponsored by the G20 Compact with Africa, German Cooperation, KFW, and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Other partners include the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre and the African Center for Economic Transformation.

More than 250 participants are expected at the event, which is being billed as a unique and exciting investment opportunity.

Meanwhile, the release indicated the meeting will take place at the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Accra Office on October 4, 2018 at 8:30 am.
