Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GNCCI) has launched its 2nd edition of the Chamber Business Awards 2017 which seeks to acknowledge and celebrate key businesses and personalities who have contributed meaningfully to business practice in Ghana.

The 2nd Chamber Business Awards which is on the theme “Empowering the private sector to move Ghana Beyond Aid” is in support of government’s agenda to grow the country’s economy beyond “hand-outs” and highlight the critical role of the private sector.

Speaking at the launch of the programme, the President of the Ghana Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Nana Dr. Appiagyei Dankawoso I said it is in line with government’s vision that the chamber chose the Ghana Beyond Aid theme for this second edition.

Highlighting the challenges faced by the private sector in the country, Nana Dankawoso I said he is confident that through the Public-Private Dialogue platform, stakeholders from both sectors will come together to address challenges faced towards ensuring that the private sector drives the growth agenda of the country.
