7th Ghana CEO Summit and Expo takes place on May 22
The 7th Ghana CEO Summit and Exhibition will come off on Monday May 22, 2023, at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel.
The 2023 Ghana CEO summit will bring together stakeholders including the Chief Executives (CEO) Network of Ghana, to restore Ghana’s economy and strive to achieve sustainable economic sovereignty.
It 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.”
According to the Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Ernest De-Graft Egyir, 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.
He noted that 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”.
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.
The summit will adopt a dynamic approach to deliver the value to its stakeholders. Therefore, there will be CEO panel discussions, plenaries, business cases, masterclasses and experts insights with Cohort of Speakers Panelists and Experts.
There will be keynote – plenary presidential dialogue session replacing the leaders voice.
The dialogue with the Special Guest of Honour will look on important policy issues ranging from resetting of the economic development agenda, public sector leadership, Business Regulatory Reforms, Social inclusion to digital economy agenda of government.
