Jinapor to investors: Ghana is ready for business in mining sector
The Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor has called on investors at the ongoing African Mining Indaba to take advantage of opportunities in Ghana’s mining sector.
Jinapor said Ghana has a stable democracy and the needed environment that will ensure that investors thrive in the sector.

“Ghana is one of the most attractive destinations for investment in Africa. I urge you all to visit the Ghana pavilion for more information on investment opportunities.
“And it is my hope that you will consider Ghana for investment. Ghana is ready for business,” Jinapor said.
