“The Ghana Club 100 Awards" instituted in 1998, is an annual event to celebrate the top 100 companies in various sectors of the country's economy.
The event was organised by the Ghana Investment Promotion Center (GIPC) on the theme: "Public Private Partnership –Ensuring Effective Domestic Entrepreneurs Participation in Ghana’s Investment Development’.
This year's awards were ranked, based on three factors of the competing companies, such as size, return on equity and growth.
Dr Ishmael Yamson, Board Chairman of GIPC said the theme was timely because it encouraged public/private participation in ensuring ways of developing effective investment in the country for national development.
He said the GIPC is not only for foreign investors but also for the local industry and advised Ghanaian investors to take advantage of the opportunity to register with the centre for optimum benefits.
