Mahama says Africa is best destination for investment

President John Dramani Mahama has said that in spite of economic challenges and the threats of disease that plague the African continent, it still remains the best destination for investment.
He said while some African countries were having deficits in their economies, others faced challenges of diseases like Ebola which is ostracizing citizens of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone
President Mahama stated this when he addressed African heads of state investment dialogue and networking luncheon at the New York Stock Exchange as part of his 10-day official visit to the United States.
The luncheon also brought together various investment players to share ideas and experiences on economic development.
The President said most markets in Europe, Asia and the Americas were choked up in terms of investment and job creation, and it was only Africa that had the capacity to open more centres to world trade.
Mahama said Africa provided some ‘virgin’ opportunities in many areas and that Ghana would take advantage of the opportunity to partner the private sector to scale-up growth.
President Mahama gave the assurance that the economic challenges would be surmounted to pave way for flourishing business and appealed to investors not to relent in their efforts.
On Ebola, President Mahama said the response was delayed but was peaking, and expressed hope that the disease could be contained soon.
