The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ghana Investments Promotion Council (GIPC), Mawuena Trebarh insists foreign investors have firm belief in Ghana’s democracy.
Foreign investors, she said, are ready to transact business in the country.
Investors are reluctant to do business in African countries, including Ghana due to fears of political instability.
However, Mrs. Trebarh said investors see Ghana as a stable democracy.
Explaining further, she said the number of investors that transacted business in the country increased sharply in 2008 and 2012, which were election years.
Ghana over the years has proven to the international community that it is a safer place politically, socially and economically, she said.
“This remarkable achievement has heightened interest among foreign investors in transacting business in the country.”
Mrs. Trebarh, who was appointed in February 2013, disclosed this while interacting with some selected media personnel in Kumasi over the weekend.
She seized the opportunity to share her vision with them.
The CEO of GIPC said she would work to boost Ghana’s image as a country on the international stage to woo more investors.
She noted that she would work assiduously to strengthen key areas.
Mrs. Trebarh noted that plans were far advanced to spread investments across the country so that more people would benefit.
She said GIPC would develop a database to showcase the operations of local investors to the world.
Mrs. Trebarh said she would invite investors to invest in Ghana’s health sector, adding that the assemble of medical equipment in the country by foreign investors was being considered.
Mrs. Trebarh called for total support from all and sundry to develop the country.
