Kina Advisory attends 2017 Ghana Presidential Inauguration
Resplendent with a colourful representation of Ghana’s culture, the ceremony attracted heads of state from 14 African countries, including Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia and of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), and President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria. Ghana’s three living former presidents, including the outgoing, were all in attendance.
With the Black Star Square as venue, the event powerfully married Ghana’s history as a pioneer of the African liberation movement with its current reputation as a beacon of democracy on the continent.
In his inaugural address, President Akufo-Addo signaled an era of integrity in the public sector. “Public service is just that – service, and not an avenue for making money. Money is to be made in the private sector, not the public,” he reminded Ghanaians. In apparent reference to his campaign promise to build factories around the country, he also called on investors to take advantage of the opportunity to “Make in Ghana,” as he declared Ghana “open for business again.”
We at Kina congratulate the President and the First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo. We have always been bullish about Ghana’s medium and long term economic prospects despite sputters in recent years. With the new government’s industrialization agenda based on light manufacturing and value-addition in agriculture, together with the promise of effective, efficient and honest governance, the short term too is brighter than previously thought. We are keen to do our part to match investors with business opportunities that support the country’s strategy for growth and development. We will work with companies to assess and manage associated political, socio-economic, social, and environmental and governance factors and to play a transformative role in shaping Ghana’s future.
