The fourth Ghana Economic Outlook and Business Strategy (EOBS) conference has been launched in Accra.

The conference is on the theme: “Industrialization: The impetus for Ghana’s economic growth”.

The EOBS, which is being organized by the Africa Business Media (ABM), would be held on 20th January 2016 to create a conducive forum where key policy and decision makers would address issues confronting the industrial sector.

Mr Kwadwo Asumaning, Chairman of ABM, said the forum would seek answers from decision makers on the inability of government to implement the initiatives in the industrial policy.

“Through the forum, local manufacturers will get the opportunity to interact with visiting foreign investors and explore opportunities for investments and partnerships,” he said.

Mr Asumaning said officials expected to attend the forum would include those from government, the business community and the diplomatic community.

In a speech read on his behalf, Dr Ekow Spio Gabrah, the Minister of Trade and Industry, commended the organisers of the conference for using such forums to help promote investment in the country.

He said government has started the implementation of the industrial policy, including the formulation of an export strategy to increase export earnings and sensitization of people to buy made in Ghana products.

Mr Moses Agyemang, a representative of the Private Enterprises Federation, urged organisers of the conference to use the forum to set the tone for what the politicians need to discuss regarding development of the industrial sector in their political campaigns.
