The Capital Finance International magazine has named the Ghana Investment Promotion
Centre (GIPC) Africa’s top investment promotion organisation for the fourth consecutive year.
The CFI.co’s award citation according to a statement issued by the Centre in Accra yesterday read “GIPC actively defended the nation’s favorable foreign Direct Investment status with a focused digitalisation effort that improved service delivery, promotional visibility, and investor interaction”
The citation also praised the Centre’s accomplishments in fulfilling its duty to encourage, promote, and facilitate investment in the nation per the GIPC Act 865.
“To keep up with evolving business trends and better serve investors, the GIPC has rampedup its operations. The Center implemented a dynamic structure that aggressively uses digital media, high-level stakeholder engagements, and business-to-business (B2B) connections.”
The citation said GIPC had promoted investment opportunities across numerous social media channels, assisted investors in registering projects and requesting exemptions online, and built an investor aftercare division to guarantee the smooth integration of support and business continuity.
Additionally, it said GIPC prioritises the SDGs as a pathway to convert country-level sustainability gaps into private-sector investment opportunities, in line with the global push for sustainable investments.
“The Centre’s extensive efforts during the COVID-19 crisis and the Russian-Ukrainian war enabled it to bring in an impressive quantity of foreign direct investment (FDI). As a result, it is not unexpected that CFI.co has named the GIPC the best IPA in Africa for the fourth consecutive year.’
The prestigious award comes in the same year that Yofi Grant, the CEO of the Centre, was recognised for Outstanding Public Leadership in the Public Sector.
