Mr. Martin Kwame Awagah - Director of Arkel, consult, stated that Ghana’s traditionally cash-driven economy responds well to new opportunities within fintech globally. And this is primarily driven by the surge in e-commerce and smartphone penetration.

Adisa Amanor- Wilks - Director of Abjel communications, reiterated the importance of The GFO report in driving the ecosystem. She stated that for every economy to develop and any sector to accelerate action, keeping data and tabs on the sector’s development trajectory is vital. This project, according to Adisa, needs to be supported because of the disruptions tech has caused in many sectors. “Covid 19 has shown how technology can be a greater driver of good if it’s used and accessed well. The GFO report aims to create a benchmark for Ghanaians and the entire continent, also to a much larger scale, the world to inform all these players about the fintech sector in Ghana and serve as a document that can subsequently be referred to,” she said.

In 2020 when the World Bank made a report on the effects of the pandemic on remittances across the World, the World Bank stated that they could not provide accurate data for certain sub-Sahara African states because there was no data available. Hence the importance of this project is to give access to the IMF, World Bank, and other multinational institutions to tap into the data to back some of the assertions that they make.
