U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) President and CEO Elizabeth L. Littlefield is visiting Ghana this week as part of an OPIC delegation meeting with Vice President of Ghana? Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur and other Ghana government officials as well as U.S. and Ghana business leaders.? The delegation will also meet with sponsors of current OPIC projects.

 

?OPIC has a long history of supporting U.S. private sector investment in Ghana and we look forward to meeting with business and government leaders to see firsthand how the projects we are supporting today are building on past progress and paving the way toward a more prosperous future,? said Elizabeth L. Littlefield, OPIC President and CEO.

 

In discussions with key business leaders and organizations, Littlefield will learn more about Ghana?s investment climate and new opportunities for U.S. investors to partner with Ghanaian businesses in a variety of sectors.? Recognizing how critical the energy, agriculture, health and financial services sectors are to Ghana?s long-term economic growth, OPIC will pay close attention to how best to support investors interested in partnering with Ghanaians in those sectors.

 

?The success of this project and many others that OPIC has supported in Ghana show how private capital can be a force for good, supporting business and advancing development that helps to improve the lives of ordinary citizens,? Littlefield said.? ?As the U.S. Government?s development finance institution, OPIC is proud to be playing a role catalyzing private investment in Ghana.?

 

OPIC currently has active projects ranging from water rehabilitation to agriculture, healthcare, energy and access to finance.
