The founder of United States-based Top Construction Firm Douchette & Associates Contractors (DAC), Mr. Doucette Sterling and business partners Donnie Marcus Bradford and David Jason Bradford have expressed interest in investing in Cape Coast. The group has identified tourism and real estates as some of the major areas for their investment.
The Founder of DAC, Mr. Sterling Doucette made this known during the delegation’s tour of Cape Coast to explore investments opportunities in the Capital City of the Central Region.
The group was invited by the Metropolitan Chief Executive of Cape Coast, Hon. Ernest Arthur, to assess Cape Coast business climate and also identify viable sectors for investment. The visit was coordinated by US based Ghanaian Bishop Spanford Esilfie and Mr. Kojo Ampah, Chief Executive Officer of Adepa Africa Investments.
While in Cape Coast, the delegation paid a courtesy call on the Central Regional Minister, Hon. Kwamena Duncan, and the Paramount Chief of the Cape Coast Traditional Area, Osaberima Kwesi Atta II where they discussed a number of business proposals.
Hon. Kwamena Duncan and Hon. Ernest Arthur led the investors to tour some areas in Cape Coast including the Cape Coast Tourism Enclave and the Lagoon Area. Others on the tour were the Metropolitan Coordinating Director, Mr. Sampson Amoako Kwarteng, the Investments Coordinator and Public Relations Officer, Mr. Richmond Yeboah, Engineer Manche and Engineer Taylor.
Touching on what the team discovered in Cape Coast, Mr. Doucette said they were impressed with the business environment and opportunities in Cape Coast, indicating that he intends to invest in both tourism and the real estates sectors.
“The three-member delegation’s visit to Ghana is the outcome of my presentation on Cape Coast viable business environment when we visited the US last year,” Hon. Ernest Arthur said.
He said there were a lot of investment opportunities in the Cape Coast for expatriates to take advantage of, adding: “When I realised I could court US investors to Ghana, we embarked on an Investments and Promotional Tour to the US. I invited them to come and have first-hand knowledge about Cape Coast”.
