The concerns of Digital Leadership for the Digital economy will be a critical subject matter for conversation among about 500 Chief Executives that will be attending this year’s CEOs summit in Accra.
At a short ceremony to lunch the event, Chief Executive of the CEOs Network, Ernest Egyir, hinted that the country has been moving towards a Digital transformation and there’s the need for Leadership that will deal with challenges of the 21st century business environment.
He has also charged government to take a critical look at difficulties facing businesses in the Ease of Doing Business reports.
“We remain committed to creating an enabling environment for the conduct of business in Ghana. Our call to action at the Summit this year is for the passage of an Ease of Doing Business and Anti-Red tape Act. The passage of an Ease of Doing Business and Anti-Red tape Act is the way to eliminate rigid conformity to procedures and requirements in government service which only creates redundancy and bureaucracy. Such legislation will require government agencies to promote transparency in their services to the public by improving efficiency and reducing bureaucratic practices.
The summit will as usual have plenary sessions on numerous areas related to the theme. Notable CEO’s and industry giants, both local and international will also share their expert insights on topics related to the theme for the benefit of participants” he said.
