Ghana’s Vice President Dr Bawumia charged all gathered CEOs to embrace digitization to speed up post-COVID recovery, a task Compu Ghana champions with its services in Ghana.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated ample systemic flaws in the way we do things, including the way we conduct business, thereby requiring us to re-think and re-orient ourselves and our businesses,” Dr Bawumia said at the summit.

“We cannot succeed if we hold on to the old ways of doing things. If we want to survive, we will have to dwell on the lessons learnt from the pandemic going forward.”

“In our bid to reset the business and economy, digitization has an enormous role to play. One of the lessons the pandemic has taught us is that digitization is the future; a future that perhaps started yesterday. Businesses will by necessity have to integrate appropriate digital technologies in their operations and service delivery to increase productivity and output.”

Other dignitaries present at the 5th Ghana CEO Summit were Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Ghana’s Minister of Communications and Dr Maxwell Opoku-Afari, First Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana.
