Ken Ofori-Atta– the Ghanaian Minister of Finance, has revealed that government will be resourcing the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) in order to make it more effective than it has been over the period.
The GIPC, he said, is expected to help government generate the needed revenue for the development of the country, hence the decision to resource the Centre. Mr. Ofori-Atta told journalists in parliament that: “the GIPC will be resourced to make it more effective than it has been.”
