MTN, the largest telecom company in South Africa, has agreed to invest $1 billion in Ghana over the next five years.

MTN CEO Ralph Mupita stated that the company was committed to investing in the West African country following a $773 million tax exemption.

He stated that they planned to spend money expanding their 5G network in Ghana in order to promote further sectoral growth.

Following a number of audits, the Ghana Revenue Authority initially asserted that MTN had understated its revenue by about 30% between 2014 and 2018.

It was once praised as a regional growth model, but today, due to the negative effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the Ukraine crisis, it is experiencing its worst economic crisis in decades.
