The business outlook for 2017 will be top of the agenda as the Ghana South Africa Chamber hosts Deputy Trade Minister, Robert Ahomka Lindsay at a Power Breakfast meeting.
Mr. Lindsay is expected to outline to delegates vital information about what the business community should expect of government in 2017.
Policy initiatives from the current government and emerging business opportunities will also be discussed at the event slated for 12th April 2017 at the Labadi Beach Hotel, Accra.
Speaking of the expectations ahead of the event, President of the Ghana South Africa Business Chamber Ashley Rix said the main concerns for businesses were the high cost of funding and unstable electricity supply.
They would be hoping to hear how government intends to address these challenges.
Mr. Rix, however, commended the Central Bank for dropping the policy rate by 200 basis point.
“We are looking forward to going by to 18 or 20 percent,” he added.
A delegation from the South African High Commission in Ghana is also expected at the event to discuss how trade relations between both countries can be enhanced.
The Power Breakfast meeting is open to both members of the chamber and non-members. Non-members would be required to pay a fee of 150 Ghana Cedis for the breakfast meeting which starts at 7 am.
The Power Breakfast meeting which is supported by JOY BUSINESS is also expected to provide networking opportunities for businesses from both countries.
The Ghana South Africa Chamber was set up in 2008 to enhance business interests of members in South Africa and Ghana and also to develop trade between both countries.
