KGL Group- title sponsored the 19th edition of the Ghana Club 100 Awards on the 14th of October 2022 at the plush Kempinski Hotel, Gold Coast City, Accra.
The glamorous event saw the top 100 companies in Ghana, who are from various industries, get recognition, with Zeepay being awarded as the number 1 company in the country. The rankings were based on a vigorous exercise that focused on size, profitability and growth of companies in the year under review.
The significance of this event, the first post- covid, sought to highlight the importance of the private sector in the rebuild of Ghana’s economy, and as the chief driver of Ghana’s industrial and macro- economic stability.
Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, Yofi Grant commended the private sector for its immense support in saving the Ghanaian economy in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine War.
“The private sector in Ghana has had to change significantly to accommodate the exigencies of the pandemic. Entrepreneurs and businesses were compelled to seek out and adopt new strategies to modify their business operations to remain productive and stable.”
On his part, Senior Advisor to President Akufo-Addo, Yaw Osafo Marfo said the country will recover from the global shocks if there are more investments into the Ghanaian economy by the private sector.
“As a catalyst to the Ghanaian economy, the private sector has done very well and with more investments more can be done to fight any external shocks”.
Executive Chairman of the KGL Group and Board Chairman of the Ghana Investment Promotion Center, Mr. Alex Dadey, in his video address congratulated the 2022 members of the Ghana Club 100 for demonstrating innovation and resilience through these turbulent times and leading the charge for the Private sector in revitalizing Ghana’s economy which is well on the road to recovery.
As an advocate for diasporan inclusion and the Private sector being the main engine for growth, Mr. Alex Dadey’s vision for the KGL Group is the growing of huge Ghanaian conglomerates which can expand into Africa and into the world and can then repatriate their profits back home to boost the local economy, similar to what is done the world over.
