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, would 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 Ayokor 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 the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, Mr. Yofi Grant, also indicated that to enhance support for investors and attract high-quality, sustainable investments to Ghana, the Centre had become more proactive towards investor sentiments.

Mr. Yofi Grant stated that through 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.
