Welcome Address from Special Guest of Honour

His Excellency President John Agyekum Kufour (President of Ghana, 2000-2008)

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.

His Excellency President John Agyekum Kufour (President of Ghana, 2000-2008)

Our keynote speakers will also provide insights on doing business in Ghana, dealing with common hurdles encountered by investors in Ghana in particular and the African continent in general.

The forum is intended to attract potential investors and policy makers keenly interested in foreign direct investment (FDI) in Ghana, our target is to realize some actual follow-on investments after the event. In view of this we are organizing for the first time ever… an “F2F With Sector Ministers” segment of the forum that will enable potential investors to interact directly with a sector minister regarding the area of their (investors’) interest.

We believe this will help address some immediate concerns whiles a good path is carved for follow-on engagements after the forum. Ghana is known the world over as a very hospitable country, We will therefore treat our high networth participants with a unique Ghanaian red-carpet treatment; you just have to get in touch to request for this.

Riding in a palanquin and wearing the “batakarikese,” (the war dress of the early Asante kings), Otumfuo entered a packed 60,000 capacity Baba Yara Sports Stadium to rapturous cheers from Asantes and other well-wishers. He succeeded Otumfuo Opoku Ware II, who died on February 25, 1999.

Before the coronation at the stadium, several rituals were performed in line with custom, including the swearing of the customary oath to the chiefs of the Kumasi Traditional Area at Dwabrem, the Manhyia Palace, where he chose the stool name Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
