Energy and Petroleum

Civet International seeks partners interested in setting up refinery facilities to serve the local industries for value-added products. We estimate 5-10 years for projects to take off.

Civet Farms Agriculture

In the past 4 years, Ghana purchased between $10-12 million dollars of red onion from Burkina Faso, Niger and Mali in the northern countries each physical year. Civet International recognizes itself as being in an advantageous position in the next 1-2 years to put a dent ($3-4 million dollars annually) into these cost as onion is a main staple vegetable used in the daily dishes in Ghana massively. We will dedicate 200 acres of virgin land to onions, fifty (50) turmeric, fifty (50) ginger and bell peppers in green houses. The Government of Ghana is encouraging companies to go into commercial farming as they are ready to support the individual companies with grants and loans to make them successful in the push to make Ghana an industrial and commercial hub in the subregion.

Civet International will export agricultural machinery from the US to Ghana to help us mechanize our operations to produce better and faster output of yields to benefit our investors.

Civet Farms Agriculture:

Our vision for the next five years is to bring modern agricultural machinery, improved production efficiency, import food security, and profitability for our company, all aimed at significantly increasing agricultural productivity. We will pursue a value-addition strategy, aimed at rapidly ramping up agro-processing and developing new and stable markets for our products as Civet International may look past Ghana and into the West African sub-region.

Their policies and interventions will ensure that their farmers and fisher-folk earn higher incomes. Their reforms will encompass the full agricultural value chain and create additional businesses and job opportunities in the areas of storage, transport, processing, packaging, and marketing of agricultural produce. It is with this that Civet International will play a major role in making this become a reality as we also go into commercial agricultural farming.

District Assemblies and Traditional Authorities will be assigned specific roles in agricultural development and we will adopt policies specifically targeted at supporting women in agriculture as part of Civet International’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Civet Estate Water-Front Estates:

With enormous water bodies in Ghana, Civet International seeks to invest in water-front lake front housing projects with lands to be secured in the future in partnership with landowners and custodians. With a vibrant middle-class economy, an increasing young population, a sophisticated and well-educated professional class, the rising demand for all types of property development largely outstrips local supply. Hence, the property development sector has consistently registered double-digit growth in the past 5 years, bolstered by investments in real estate and construction, mining, oil and gas.

Governance and Accountability

The fundamental requirement for sustainable development is good governance. They are irrevocably committed to the establishment of solid, efficient machinery for good governance, comprising accountable government and respect for the rule of law and human rights.

Civet Securities: Security (Personal and Industrial Security)

There is a big demand for personal security as Ghana is entering a new paradigm of wealth levels for the business community. Personal Security for the affluent and their family is on a rise also for government officials and institutions who may need our services.

Tourism and Creative Arts

Ghana possesses an extensive array of tourist attractions that include UN Heritage Sites, Forts and Castles, ancient mosques, slave trade artifacts, indigenous craft villages, and various wildlife sanctuaries. There is room for Civet International LLC to grow into this array of opportunities that are opening up in the country.

The government’s focus on transforming the country into a major Meeting, Incentive, Conference, & Exhibition (MICE) center, as well as on expanding the tourism sector, through investment, innovation, the pursuit of service excellence, and meaningful partnerships is on course. This will enable tourism to become a major revenue-generating sector that provides a safe, memorable, and enjoyable experience for tourists.

Also, the government will give the Arts and Culture Industry the requisite attention and incentives to flourish and to create jobs and wealth for our people. We will build a detailed inventory of all our cultural assets so the nation has a database of these assets. This inventory will include all of Ghana’s tangible assets, like the Larabanga mosque, and intangible cultural assets like rites of passage and values and belief systems, which are in danger of disappearing completely with aging traditional custodians.

Additionally, the country is also focusing on supporting the Creative Arts sector to enable it to realize its full potential for generating wealth for its practitioners, create jobs, and grow the economy.

Foreign Affairs

Since independence, Ghana has been held in high esteem in the comity of nations, thanks to its consistent show of leadership in international matters, especially within the West African region and on the African continent.

Their foreign policy is one of their principal agents of her socioeconomic resurgence. They seem to improve on the efficiency and effectiveness of their foreign missions which will redirect their emphasis to the search for economic opportunities with the view to opening markets for Ghanaian goods while attracting foreign investments into the Ghanaian economy.

To achieve this, the government is reviewing existing policies to take into account the new world order with respect to developments like Brexit, the emergence of China and other BRICS nations – Brazil, Russia, India, and South Africa.
