The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, has called for the implementation of policies to engender a transformative environment for enhanced trade and investment. That, she said, will enable commonwealth members to reap prosperous and mutual benefits from integration and participation in global and regional supply chains as well as multilateral trade.
Madam Ayorkor Botchway made this statement at an economic dialogue in Accra, jointly organized by the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, on the theme “Navigating the changing landscape of international investment agreements.”
According to Madam Ayorkor Botchway, the transformative policy would even be a module for the World Trade Organization (WTO) for the synergic mix of regional and multilateral trade integration.
The Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Minister explained that government, through digital innovations, had eased the burden of doing business and investing in the country by streamlining processes to provide faster and more convenient services to people.
She encouraged investors to continue to put their money into Ghana’s agriculture and agribusiness, manufacturing and industry, ICT and automobile sectors, where mutually beneficial
opportunities abound.

The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Investment Promotion Center, Mr. Yoofi Grant also indicated that, to enhance support for investors and attract high-quality sustainable investments to Ghana, the Center had become more proactive toward investor sentiments.
Mr. Yoofi Grant stated that through a World Bank assistance under the Ghana Economic Transformation Project (GETP), the country had developed a corporate investment Promotion Strategy and Business Plan.

The plan he said had been aiding GIPC in defining and optimizing its partnerships with stakeholders while adapting and expanding its activities to provide relevant and comprehensive services to investors.
