On Monday 20th May, His Excellency the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Mahamudu Bawumia was the Guest Speaker at 3rd edition of Africa Global Leadership Conference organised by International Advertising Association (IAA) and also participated in the 4th edition of the annual Ghana CEO Summit as the Guest of Honor in Accra.
Both the IAA conference and the CEOs Summit seek to explore the critical roles technology plays in building modern day economies that deliver the key needs of the citizenry. “For us in Ghana, this has been our drive in nearly the two and half years of the government of President Nana Akufo Addo” he stated categorically.
We are leveraging technology to formalize the Ghanaian economy through digitization. It was refreshing to note that most of the points of references by the speakers for a modern day economy dwelled on the many digitization initiatives we have and are undertaking as a government.
The government of Nana Akufo Addo has been guided by the understanding and conviction that technology is critical to transforming the Ghanaian economy and society as whole. “We’ll continue to use technology to leverage our challenges”, he said. See the eclectic style images below!
