The President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Professor John Atta Mills will lead Ministers of State, captains of industry, international speakers and key representatives of local and foreign businesses to discuss investment opportunities in major sectors of the Ghanaian economy. Amidst the current global financial crisis, investors in Ghana continue to post positive returns on their investments.
