It is widely believed that one of the core attributes of transformational national leadership is to be able to chart a course for progressive prosperity and positive national transformation. It is true that national Leadership needs continuous atonement to the needs, desires and expectations of the populace, when the expectations of the people are unmet, leadership stands at the forefront of blame and citizen’s distrust, it for this reason that it is important to regularly bring leadership and the populace together to take stock, identify bottlenecks and mutually propose ways for socio-economic development going forward-GEF seeks to do just this.

This combination of experience and innovative thinking has led to valuable recommendations on the country’s economic development goals. This year the Ghana Economic Forum’s Focus Group sessions will discuss Finance, Tax, Technology, Infrastructure, Tourism among others on the day of event.

The forum will also provide opportunities for participants to interact with business experts from the public and private sectors, as well as the country’s top bankers and financial service providers.
