Speaking at the launch of this year?s week celebration which is under the theme ?The Capital market: A key to Economic growth and Development,? the Director of SEC, Mr. Adu A. Antwi noted that, the celebration which was formally instituted in 2007 has greatly helped to educate a large number of Ghanaians on how to create wealth using the capital market as a means of investment.
According to him, from 2009 to 2011 the week was subdued under the broader Financial Literacy Week celebrations under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning in collaboration with all the Financial Regulators in Ghana.
However, in 2012, SEC decided to reinstate the week re-naming it the capital market week so as to enable SEC reach out to the general public on investment and other capital market issues in a more sustained manner.
The celebration is slated from 4th May 2013 to 10th May 2013.
