We here at B-Open Nordic have the pleasure to work with Ghana as an interesting growth market in West Africa. Here to the left Joachim Davidsson, Managing Director of B-Open Nordic meet the Ambassador of Ghana to the Nordic region, Ambassador Edith Hazel during a business conference in southern Sweden. As visitor to both East and West Africa we can see tremendous growth within IT and mobile telecom not only the great resorts and sights you can find as a tourist to Ghana. This opens the door for many new ICT companies to establish and grow, independently or with partners for joint ventures. We see many business opportunities for Scandinavian companies in West Africa.
We have helped IT companies to establish themselves and grow in new markets for many years. FinTech (financial + technology) is a hot topic in both West and East Africa. Mr Charles Arkuh, VP of Groupe Ideal in Ghana said recently that he ask the financial sector in Ghana to take strategic decisions in order to sustain the industry as the advent of the mobile money transactions is transforming the sector. He ask for more innovations from banks and financial companies. Financial services, mobile money and other FinTech solutions will be very interesting opportunities in Ghana and in the region during 2017 and forward. We also been working with companies offering better E-Commerce and Digital Marketing in the region and this can open the door to new business but also partnerships between companies in Ghana and foreign investors.
