Haruna Iddrisu courts British investors
The Minister of Trade and Industry, Haruna Iddrisu, has assured the investor community in Britain of a stable socio-economic environment in Ghana that will make it possible for them to reap maximum returns for their individual investments.
He has thus called on them to double their investments in the country to enable them to benefit from the various opportunities available in the country.
The minister made the call at a high level roundtable forum organised by Africa Matters Limited and Barclays Bank Plc under the auspices of the Ghana High Commission in Britain.
The forum was used to promote the enormous investment potential and business opportunities that the country offers to the world, particularly, investor community in Britain.
In his welcome remarks, UK’s Minister Responsible for Africa Affairs, Hon. Mark Simmonds, commended Ghana for the progress made in deepening democratic governance and macroeconomic management.
While paying glowing tribute to the British government for the tremendous support and assistance it provided Ghana over the years, Mr Iddrisu said the country would remain an oasis of peace and political stability with enormous opportunities for investment and prosperity.
“This makes us a preferred destination of choice for foreign direct investment in the sub-region,” he said.
The ministers took turn to brief the participants on the investment opportunities in their respective sectors of the economy.
