Eugenia heads the Research Team of Ghana’s lead Investment Promotion Agency (IPA) – the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC). She influences the Centre’s performance and policies related to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) through investment targeting, facilitation services, and content creation while proposing investment promotion best practices through her work.

In recent times, Eugenia serves as the focal person for GIPC’s external relations with donor partners. Through her work, she has supported the development of a corporate strategy for the GIPC, which is being rolled out. She ensures the Centre has efficient systems and tools in place for all key functions and supports building the capacity of teams to execute the key mandate of the Centre.

These include efforts to achieve the 70% contribution from the private sector for the GHC100 billion Ghana CARES program, support the GIPC in making Ghana the hub for investments in Africa, and drive the Ghana Beyond Aid agenda, even as we progress with the operationalization of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA).
