Official Launch Of Private Sector Initiative Against Corruption (PSACG)

Last Tuesday the official launch of the Private Sector Anti-Corruption Group (PSACG)  was held at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel.

PSACG serves as an advocacy organisation against corruption in the private sector. The organization is driven by the United Kingdom Ghana Chamber of Commerce (UKGCC) with support from the heads of the Chambers of Commerce comprising of the Canada Ghana Chamber of Commerce (CGCC), the European Business Organization (EBO), the Ghana Netherlands Business and Culture Council (GNBCC), and the American Chamber of Commerce, Ghana (AMCHAM).

PSACG was formed to give private sector leaders a safe platform to speak freely about their experiences and discuss issues that affect their businesses from a corruption point of view through a series of Safe Space Forums. The 1st one was held last May and currently, PSACG is drafting key policy recommendations based on this  Forum. The forum was a private event where 30 private sector business leaders were invited to discuss the impact of corruption on their businesses in Ghana and the needed necessary reforms. Once the policy recommendations are finalized they will be presented to the Vice President's Office. After this, the PSACG will monitor and report on the progress of government ’s fight against corruption.

After a speech on corruption by the British High Commissioner Mr. Iain Walker, Mr Tony Burkson, CEO of the UKGCC officially launched the PSACG by calling upon his colleagues from the other Chambers present to take a group picture.
