About the Country

Ghana has always been an epitome of technological growth in Africa. Africa and Ghana have been at this turning point, this cross-road of opportunity and potential before, during the telecommunications boom of the 1990s and 2000s. Indeed, Ghana was one of the first countries in Africa to liberalize and deregulate its telecommunications sector, in 1994. Africa’s telecommunications industry liberalization helped spur national and regional economic development. Recently, the Bank of Ghana (BoG), the banking industry regulator, published data which shows that Ghana’s mobile money transactions doubled to 155.8 billion Cedis ($35 billion) in 2017, from 78.5 billion Cedis in 2016.

In line with this vision, The World CIO 200 Summit 2020 will bring together the digital leaders who have gone the extra mile in living up to the expectations of their organization and thereby the nation. Join the country’s top CIOs at The World CIO Summit 2020 as we divulge industry pivotal areas through our focused keynotes, TECHTalk and expert panel discussio
