Overview

Ghana has long been viewed as a success story in West Africa, but in the last year a weakened fiscal position has led to concerns over its short-to-medium term economic prospects, as well as some questioning of assumptions around its long-sustained democratic stability. While IMF assistance will bolster the economy, the government is pursuing a ‘home grown strategy’ to address challenges and diversify the economy. 

At this private roundtable, President John Dramani Mahama and his team of ministers will engage in an in-depth discussion on economic policy and its implementation.

Attendance at this event is strictly by invitation only.
