Euromoney Conferences, the world’s leading organiser of conferences for cross-border investment and capital markets and co-host, the Bank of Ghana, will hold the inaugural Euromoney Ghana/West Africa Conference on 25 September in Accra.
A stellar line-up of speakers from Ghana, West Africa and further afield will discuss how fintech and innovation are coming together and driving a fundamental reshaping of the financial services industry.
