A sub regional property investment summit, which seeks to break new grounds with an all new format for tackling
the challenges in the real estate market, is set to take place in Accra next month.
The two-day conference, dubbed, West African Property Summit (WAPI), comes off from November 16 – 17.
In particular, the forum will take a deep dive into issues affecting the West African real estate market, and a start for discussion and solutions building.
