Beyond The Year Of Return

President Nana Akufo-Addo at the weekend launched the “Beyond the Return, The Diaspora Dividend” Initiative, a move to enable Ghana to derive maximum benefits from and build on the dividends of the “Year of Return” chatter.

The Year of Return Ghana 2019, a Government initiative, which ends in January 2020, is intended to encourage African diasporans to come to Ghana to settle and invest in the continent.

The move had put a positive spotlight on Ghana and attracted many people of African descent, mainly from the Caribbean and the USA to Ghana in the past few months.  At a brief ceremony in Accra, the President said as the curtain drew on the “Year of Return” initiative; it was time to engage Africans in the Diaspora and all persons of African descent to help make Ghana and Africa a place for investment and economic development.
