Destination Ghana Summit 2015 has been established as an annual RECRUITMENT and INVESTMENT Summit organized by WAVES International, Star 100 UK and JCI Ghana to inspire investor confidence in the economies across the West Africa sub-region and to engage Africans living in the Diaspora to explore various means of them contributing to the socio-economic development of their respective countries
The summit brand name (DESTINATION GH SUMMIT) was chosen carefully with emphasis on Ghana as the gateway to other African Countries across the West because of its stable democratic dispensation. Through Ghana, investors could have easy access to Africa’s biggest economy Nigeria and other emerging economies like Cote D’voire, Mali, Burkina-Faso among others.

There are great opportunities in developing cashless society for countries in the region and other services.
