It is a significant period in the Ghanaian energy industry. Whilst foreign investment is steadily growing in the region, shifting global oil prices and Ghana’s energy shortfall has forced local Ghanaian companies to assess how this affects their business. Now, more than ever, it is absolutely crucial to be in tune with the industry and build reliable partnerships.
Going into its 6th year, the Ghana Summit is the most successful and the most established oil, gas & power event in Ghana, bringing together regional and international industry leaders. It is the only event of its kind to be fully supported by the Government of Ghana, with key endorsers including the Ministry of Petroleum; Ministry of Power; GNPC; Petroleum Commission; Ghana Gas; ECG, VRA and GRIDCo.
The summit has a long-standing tradition of driving growth and investment into Ghana, and of energising local Ghanaian content. With the opportunity to meet policy makers and fellow regional experts, this year’s SME-centric programme will focus on empowering local Ghanaian businesses.
Topics to be discussed will include:
What are the local content expectations of SMEs with regards to roles and responsibilities from the government, IOCs and the private sector?
Is further regulation needed to supplement the local content bill and ensure the industry continues to develop and progress forward?
How is the government incentivising internationals to enter the market and adjust to new local content requirements?
Using local talent to develop local talent – a collaborative approach
Developing the next generation of Ghanaian geologists
