GIPC wins Best Investment Promotion Agency in Africa, for fourth year in a row

306views

The Capital Finance International Magazine has named the Ghana Investment Promotion

Centre (GIPC) Africa’s top investment promotion organization for the fourth consecutive

year.

The GIPC actively defended the nation’s favorable FDI status with a focused digitalization

effort that improved service delivery, promotional visibility, and investor interaction,

according to CFI.co’s award citation. It 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 ramped

up its operations. The center implemented a dynamic structure that aggressively uses

digital media, high-level stakeholder engagements, and business-to-business (B2B)

connections.

It has 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, the GIPC prioritizes 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

recognized for Outstanding Public Leadership in the Public Sector.

Aside from the GIPC, other big winners of this year’s CFI.co awards include the

International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), Deloitte Cyprus, JPMorgan Chase &

Co., Fitch Ratings, South Africa’s Old Mutual Investment Group, and UK’s Access Bank.

The new CFI.co award adds to other respected honours the Centre has garnered over the

past few years. It was similarly awarded the Best Audit Committee (MDA Category) by the

Internal Audit Agency and recognized by the Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) awards as

the 2nd Best Investment Promotion Agency in Africa. AIM is the world’s leading

investment-focused event, initiated by the UAE Ministry of Economy to acknowledge and

enrich institutional, corporate, and individual investors.
