Ghana will in October this year host Africa’s prosperity Summit at Kwahu. This follows the successful launch of the Summit by the Africa Prosperity Network
The launch attracted top African business leaders, political leaders, and local and international media practitioners.
Speaking at the launch, Mr Wamkele Mene, the Executive Secretary of the AfCFTA Secretariat emphasized the need for Africans to have impactful dialogues about Africa’s trade relations with the rests of the world in light of the state of intra-Africa trade.
He stated AfCfFTA Secretariate’s support for the Kwahu Summit and hoped it would effectively engage the full range of sustainable development actors, governments, and businesses to explore how to accelerate the AfCFTA implementation as well as the kind of economic development vision Africa must have for decades to come.
Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Minister of Information, urged Africans to leverage opportunities and resources on the continent to achieve more.
Mr. Yofi Grant, Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC), emphasized the need for Africans to proactively direct global discourses and collaborations on Africa’s development, given the share of global natural resources the Continent possessed and the potential of the Continent’s demography for consumerism, leadership, and labour force.
The maiden edition of the Kwahu Summit on Africa’s prosperity will take place at the Rock City Hotel at Kwahu on 28th and 29th October 2022.
Partners of the Summit are AfCFTA Secretariat, the Government of the Republic of Ghana, and the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC).
