The Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) on 26th March 2024, hosted its maiden Investor Aftercare Forum, at the Labadi Beach Hotel.

The event, themed ‘enhancing investor experience,’ provided a platform for key stakeholders to deliberate on strategies aimed at bolstering support for investor growth and streamlining business operations within the country.

Investment trends over the years have shown that a significant percentage of foreign direct investment (FDI) in countries is linked to already existing foreign businesses. 

This phenomenon underscores the need to prioritize reinvestment through the enhancement of the investment climate, particularly for existing businesses.

The forum therefore served as an avenue to gather feedback and insights from MDA Focal Persons, MMDAs, and investors to identify areas for improvement, in creating an enabling environment post-establishment.

Speaking at the event, GIPC’s CEO, Mr. Yofi Grant underscored the criticality of aftercare in every country’s investment promotion effort. He asserted that, though there has been significant improvement in the ease of doing business in Ghana, key areas such as the

investor-onboarding, and post-establishment support can be further streamlined.

Mr. Grant therefore urged stakeholders to make use of the Investor Grievance Mechanism, which is earmarked to identify and track in a timely manner, issues besetting investor operations.

He also assured them of the government’s commitment to create an enabling environment that will ensure that “investments in Ghana are retained and expanded”.
