The US ambassador to Ghana, Robert Jackson, has revealed the exact reason(s) why most American investors are turning away from Ghana.
The ambassador reveals that the high cost of air travel and the undue delays in visa acquisition as two major challenges to investments to Ghana.
“Among the things that hold the US investors back include the travel cost; Ghana’s aviation is very expensive. Secondly we see that the speed with which the Ghanaian embassy in the United States processes visas is about three weeks. We have our own visa issues but we process our visas within 48 hours. If you want more visitors and businesses to come to Ghana, then making it easier to get visas will help with that,” he revealed.
