He was the Keynote Speaker at the Columbia University’s Annual Economic Forum in New York City, as well as the Chicago University’s Booth Business School’s 2019 Emerging Market Summit.
Last month, Dr Bawumia was the Inspirational Speaker at the graduation ceremony for the 2019 Humanities and Law graduates of the University of Buckingham. He graduated with First Class Honours Degree in Economics from the same university in 1987.
Dr Bawumia returns to Accra on Saturday.
