GIPC boss Yofi Grant speaks on investment, trade at a forum in South Africa


As part of his efforts to promote the coordination of intra Africa trade among African Investment Promotion Agencies, the CEO of Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC), Mr Yofi Grant, will be participating in a round table discussion on the theme “ Building Synergies in Investment Promotion and Facilitation: The AfCFTA Protocol on Investment” at the ongoing AfCFTA Business Forum in Cape Town, South Africa.

The session will take a deep-dive into the provisions in the protocol on investment related to promotion and facilitation, and their relevance to IPAs, especially within the context of the Pan-African Trade Investment Agency, established within the protocol to assist State parties in the promotion and facilitation of investments in collaboration with existing national and regional Investment Promotion Agencies and other relevant stakeholders.

The AfCFTA Business Forum organized under the patronage of the Government of the Republic of South African is intended to enable the private sector to unlock trade and investment opportunities presented by the AfCFTA in order to boost trade.

The forum brings together African global business executives, strategic investors, financial institutions, investment promotion agencies, business councils, chambers of commerce, multinational corporations, Africa women and youth business organizations, as well as Heads of State and Government.
