Mr. Moffet was speaking at a Community Social Responsibility (CSR) forum organized by the Canadian High Commission on the theme “addressing environmental challenges towards sustainable mining in Ghana” in Accra yesterday.

According to him, all mining investors from Canada who thought of doing business in Ghana are now choosing Cote d’voir ,where tariffs and taxes a bit down as compared to Ghana.

The theme for the forum was done by a panel which consisted Mr. Richard Ellimah, Executive Director for Center for Social Impact Studies, Mr. RansfordSekyi, Director/intersectoralNetwork, Environmental Protection Authority.

Other panel members were Mr. Kenneth Norris, VP and General Manager, Chirano Gold Mines Ltd and Mr. Jeffrey Davidson, CSR Counsellor (Canada)
