President Akufo-Addo has welcomed and lauded Twitter’s decision to launch Africa headquarters in Ghana.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the social media company, Jack Patrick Dorsey on Monday announced that Ghana has been selected to be Africa’s operation hub.

Taking to social media, President Akufo-Addo noted that this initiative is critical for the development of the country’s technology sector describing the move as excellent.

Therefore, “government and Ghanaians welcome very much this announcement and the confidence reposed in our country,” the President stated.

According to the President, this is the start of a beautiful partnership between Twitter and Ghana after several virtual interactions with Jack Patrick on the matter.

From President Akufo-Addo to potential investors, these are exciting times to do business with and in Ghana.

Ghana’s recent appointment to host The Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area is said to be one of many reasons for this decision.

According to Twitter, Ghana’s decision to host the AfCTA “aligns with our overarching goal to establish a presence in the region that will support our efforts to improve and tailor our service across Africa.”

Meanwhile, Twitter says it has commenced hiring as it sets up operations in the country.
