I wish to heartily welcome you to WOMEG 2019. WOMEG has been conceived of as one of the special gatherings in Ghana that puts together high-profile government policy makers and potential and active investors in Ghana. WOMEG also brings together businesses across the entire spectrum of economic activities with a keen focus on government priority themes and sectors as articulated in the manifesto of the ruling party as well as the national strategic development document of the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC), as businesses from across the entire value chain will be present. It is the keen goal of the organizers to promote fruitful B2B engagements, investment discovery and the forming of strategic partnerships and alliances that will result in significant deals and appreciable FDI inflow to Ghana and the sub-region.
I am not only welcoming you to WOMEG 2019, but more importantly, I am extremely delighted to welcome you to Ghana and to Africa. Ghana currently presents itself as an exciting investment destination. It may interest you to note that for more than three years running the government of Ghana has exceeded its own target for FDI. This makes the country even more ambitious and confident of being the gateway to the West African Sub-region and the Investment hub of Africa.
