Accelerating businesses to thrive beyond borders during crisis
The global outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic presents a significant threat not only to human health but also to the business sector. In Ghana, experts project significant revenue shortfalls and an overall dip in Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Government has also indicated that the cumulative effect of the novel coronavirus pandemic will cost Ghana over GHS9 billion. At the micro-level, it is also projected that Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) will be the hardest hit. Businesses across the country are feeling the pinch and, in some cases, there has been a complete halt in operations.
Despite these challenges, some businesses are taking a range of actions not just to respond to the crisis but also to prepare to take advantage of the recovery with help from government and other private stakeholders.
Many private institutions including banks are implementing various fiscal measures to mitigate the adverse effect and provide relief for businesses. It is on this bases that Stanbic Bank is staying extremely close to its clients by providing advisory support and tools to ensure business continuity for its clients.
It is also against this backdrop that the Enterprise Banking team has planned this webinar series designed to help provide the necessary support for clients.
The webinar series will be in three different sessions scheduled for the third quarter (July – September), one session per month.
These sessions will be facilitated by industry think tanks and decision makers. They will lead the discussions on thought provoking topics carefully selected to help shape your business to fit into the current business environment.
