The 7th Ghana CEO Summit and Expo has been launched with a call on the government of Ghana to work together with relevant stakeholders including the Chief Executives(CEO) Network of Ghana, to restore Ghana’s economy and strive to achieve sustainable economic sovereignty.
Founder and Chief Executive Officers, Ernest De-Graft Egyir, said the summit will offer concrete, innovative and actionable solutions, champions private sector growth, leads discussions around game-changing public policies and advocates for best growth-oriented practices to help the country move forward, build resilient companies and develop outstanding CEOs.
The 2023 Ghana CEO summit is being held under the theme “Economic Sovereignty, Sustainable Corporate Governance, Digital Industrial Transformation: New Paths for Growth and Prosperity. A Private-Public Sector CEO Dialogue & Learning.”
Mr. Egyir said the theme will seek growth and prosperity for Ghana and for all , adopting three unique paths of economic sovereignty, Sustainable Corporate Governance ( ESG) and Digital Industrial Transformation.
He mentioned there is an underlying factor which is causing much of the harm of the recent string of economic crises – a lack of national economic sovereignty.
“Ghana’s path through disruptions, from the pandemic to the conflict in Ukraine, remains uncertain, with interest rates trending upwards with pressure on the country’s currency rising, supply chain disruptions, agricultural commodity inflation and rising public debt, Ghana’s room to manoeuvre towards economic recovery is shrinking”.
He therefore pointed out that event (crises) in the recent past have accelerated the transition towards renewables and a digital economy, adding, “these crises have shown the need to transform economies and pushed economic sovereignty to the fore. From reducing the trade deficit for food, and manufacturing medicine locally, the quest for economic sovereignty is becoming central to public policy across the continent”.
Mr. Egyir called for a robust public-private dialogue involving CEOs and policy makers in setting the stage for those of tomorrow, noting, the country’s top CEOs will share their visions of a more shock-resilient Ghana.
