Vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has told Maltese investors that Ghana has the most conducive environment for business in the African continent.
“Ghana is the place it is all happening at in Africa and there is no better place and time to invest in Africa than in Ghana and right now,” he told the investors at the Ghana -Malta trade business forum in Accra Thursday.
The event was attended by the President Malta, Mrs. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, the President and Members of the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce, the President, Malta Chamber of Commerce and representatives of business associations.
Vice President Bawumia assured them of the security of their investment as grounded in the legal regimes of the commonwealth to which both countries subscribe.
He also cited the congenial political atmosphere and the emerging virgin investment opportunities in areas of agribusiness, ICT and other sectors as reasons for investment in the country.
Dr Mahamadu hinted Ghana will by the end of this year fully implement a National Digital Addressing System, National Identification Scheme, and Interoperability of Banking and Mobile Communications platform that will broaden the tax base and open up the economy for more investments.
He said the government is making giant steps to make the economy more investor friendly.
“We are pursuing sound macroeconomic policies that will create a stable, predictable, and fluid business environment”
Dr. Bawumia also urged Ghanaian investors to also position themselves strategically to take advantage of the pro-business environment of Malta which has access to the European market.
“Malta offers you an opportunity to expand the market for your goods and services and I hope that you will position yourselves to also, in turn, take advantage of the Maltese market” he said.
The vice president said government would always be ready to help local investors in accessing the Malta market.
