It said the core mandate of the chamber was to advocate US businesses and by extension the promotion of FDIs in this country.
“It also creates the enabling environment in which Ghanaian and US businesses can thrive, promoting the spirit of free enterprise, creating opportunity and prosperity for our two countries,” the release said.
The chamber recalled a survey conducted by PwC, which said 40 per cent of our members, between 2004 and 2014, invested about US$12 billion in capital and operational expenditure.
The release said about US$1 billion was also paid in taxes, royalties and on corporate social responsibility over the 10-year period.
“These companies intend to spend about US$3.5 billion in the Ghanaian economy between 2015 and 2020 and they directly employ about 7,000 Ghanaians,” it said.
