The University of Professional Studies (UPSA) and the Ghana branch of ICSA: The Governance Institute (ICSA Ghana) have today announced plans to hold a governance symposium on the theme of ‘Towards deliberate governance in Ghana: immediate considerations and measures’.
The symposium will take place at UPSA’s LBL Auditorium Justice Ayertey’s Building in Accra on Friday 21 September 2018. Prominent governance experts Professor Albert Puni, the Dean of the Faculty School of Management Studies; Mr Osei Gyasi, Head of Banking Supervision Department at the Bank of Ghana; and Mr Sam Okudjeto, Senior Partner at Okudjeto and Associates and a Council of State member will address the issues and challenges surrounding governance in Ghana.
Speaking about the event George Coleman, Chair of ICSA Ghana said: “Good governance is vital to the economic success of Ghana as it helps to tackle corruption and improves performance. It also encourages better decision making and the efficient use of resources and strengthens accountability for the stewardship of those resources. We hope that the symposium will open the debate on how we can improve governance in Ghana and provide support to the many committed professionals who are working tirelessly to embed strong governance practices within Ghana.”
The symposium will run from 9.30am until 12.30pm and is open to anyone working as a governance professional and those members of the general public with an interest in good governance.
