The risk of Corruption to Entrepreneurial and Business Growth in Ghana

Tuesday, November 23, 2021 - 10:00

Corruption creates mistrust between citizens and public institutions and undermines entrepreneurial innovation. Ghana’s performance in global corruption indices has fluctuated over the years, recording scores below average in most cases. This suggests that the perceived and actual incidence of corruption in Ghana’s business environment has not improved. These factors and others could stifle Ghana’s opportunities to attract investors and weaken trade relations, especially in a Ghana Beyond Aid context.

While there are published works on public sector corruption and governance in Ghana, relatively few fora exist to discuss the channels of impact and effect on the country’s business environment.

The sixth RDS will focus on issues such as the supply and demand side of corruption, the internal and external dimensions of corruption, and impact of corruption on businesses.

IMANI CPE will also share its survey findings assessing corruption risks in doing business in Ghana at the event.
