The Chief Executives Network Ghana has announced the postponement of the 5th Ghana CEO Summit which was scheduled to take place in Accra on 18th and 19th of May, 2020.
Founder and CEO of the Summit, Ernest De-Graft Egyir explained that this is due to the COVID-19 global pandemic which has compelled the President Akufo-Addo to impose a ban on all public gatherings including conferences, seminars, workshops, sporting events, worship services and schools.
A new date will be announced as soon as the government and public health experts declare it is safe to do so, Mr Egyir said.
The Ghana CEO Summit is a business conference for topmost CEOs, heads of state, government officials, diplomats, board directors and board leaders.
The Summit supports the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 2020 Summit will focus on the theme: “The digital economy: Digital transformation of business and government for growth and competitiveness; a high-level public-private sector dialogue.”
The Summit platform offers a bouquet of interventions that enhance the capacity of contemporary business and civic leaders to function effectively to obtain sustained growth.
These interventions include a presidential keynote address and panel discussion, expert insights, CEO and business case studies, technology demonstration, CEO awards, networking and high-value business deals.
