Distinguished ladies and gentlemen

It is a great honour to be invited to speak at this august event to commemorate International Women's Day 2019! It is humbling to share this moment with my good old friends at the Ghana Stock Exchange with whom I labored over the years to develop various aspects of Ghana's capital market infrastructure. I am also humbled to stand here today on behalf of all the women (many of whom are in this room today including some from the BoG) and others who are not here today but who have devoted their time, energy, intellect, and other resources to advance economic development in Ghana in their own small way, sometimes at great personal sacrifice.
