As incumbent President Nana Akufo-Addo builds his campaign for re-election in December 2020 against former president John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Invest Africa invites you to our deep dive discussion, examining the political and economic future of Ghana at the end of 2020 and into 2021.

Our panel of experts will scrutinise the knock-on effects of COVID-19 on the country’s economy, the economic challenges including dwindling revenue, increase in spending, and a high debt to GDP ratio to the Covid-19 pandemic, the measure the incoming president will need to take to tackle rising poverty throughout the country (see UNDP report on the socio-economic impact of COVID-19) and how these elections will determine Ghana’s positioning across the continent as the country takes the lead on implementing the long-awaited AfCFTA.
