The maiden edition of the Citibusinessnews.com Breakfast Encounters comes off this morning La Palm Royal Beach Hotel.
Citibusinessnews.com Breakfast Encounters brings together industry players in finance, economy and all business related fields to drive thought provoking discussions and give in-depth analysis of pertinent issues making headlines in their sectors.
Today’s event will ‘scrutinize into detail the impact of Brexit on Ghana’.
There are fears the exit of the UK will have an impact on Ghana’s trade relations with the UK, with a likely renegotiation of trade deals between the two countries, as well as a plunge in financial support from the UK to Ghana and other rippling effects on international relations, immigration and the financial sector among others.
To help get an excellent understanding of the matter a panel of carefully selected persons have been brought together.
They are the Head of Department for Finance, University of Ghana Business School, Prof. Godfred A. Bokpin, Banking consultant and Head of the Osei Tutu II Centre for Executive Education and Research, Nana Otuo Acheampong, Senior Research Fellow at the Legon Centre for International Affairs and Diplomacy (LECIAD), Dr Vladimir Antwi-Danso and the Executive Director, European Business Organization (Ghana), Nico van Staalduinen.
Speaking ahead of the program, the Head of the Business News desk at Citi Fm, Vivian Kai Lokko said today’s event will among other things shape future policy decisions on the effect of the decisions on Ghana.
“The discussions are expected to help us inform our decisions moving forward. For example the exit will definitely affect immigration, labour in Ghana and even the country’s borrowing on the international market. As such, the discussions or revelations that we are looking forward to, are expected to inform business persons and people related to these issues take proper decisions going forward,” she stated.
The event is being organized by Citibusinessnews.com and will be powered by Citi Business News.
