The American Chamber of Commerce, Ghana, in collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers, has launched the State of American Business Study 2019.
The study will serve as a pulse check of the current United States business environment in Ghana and provide an overview of the contributions of American companies to Ghana’s economy.
PwC first supported the Chamber with the exploratory study in August 2015.
Speaking at the launch of the study in Accra on Thursday, November 21, 2019, the outgoing AmCham Ghana President, Joe Mensah, said, “American companies have contributed immensely to Ghana’s development, and that data is needed to know where we are now.”
He added that the Chamber would once again collaborate with PwC to conduct the study as it did in 2015. “A significant amount of time has passed since the first study and I hope that we will receive a greater level of participation this year,’ he noted.
He advised all American businesses in Ghana to sign up and share their data with the Chamber. “I urge American businesses in Ghana to sign up to be part of the study to enable us to get a true depiction of their contributions to the country,’ he said.
