Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is important for all but more so for emerging markets (e.g. Baltabaev, 2014). FDI is noted to create employment, generate additional capital, increase productivity, offer transfer of technology and contribute to economic growth and development of the host countries. As a result, many countries are making efforts and policy changes to attract FDI (Campos & Kinoshita, 2010). One of the evidence of such efforts is the establishment of Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs). This current research presents the Ghanaian experience, thereby providing IPAs examples of effective strategies and to suggest ways for improvement in the investment attraction approach.
