President Nana Akufo-Addo has encouraged British investors to take advantage of Ghana’s political and economic stability and invest in the country.
Nana Akufo-Addo said the current economic conditions make Ghana an ideal place to invest.
Speaking at the opening of the Ghana-UK Investment Opportunities Summit taking place on the sidelines of the UK-Africa summit in London, President Akufo-Addo said government has laid a strong foundation for prospective investors.
“Surely, an increase in intra-regional trade in Africa is one of the surest ways to promote the progress we seek for Africa. It should guarantee a rapid increase in exchanges of our agricultural, financial, industrial, scientific and technological products. It will enhance dramatically, our attainment of prosperity and the prospects of employment for the African peoples, particularly our youth. Our economies will then be safe, not by the production and export of raw materials but by the things we make and grow.
“Unfortunately for us in Africa, we continue to travel along the wrong path of limited success, of being producers and exporters of raw materials – a relic of our past colonial association. We are now required to think outside the box. Our thinking and approach to solving problems must be different from the thinking and approach that brought about the problems in the first place”, he said.
