The conference, which began on June 19, 2023, invited Mr Mahama as a special guest to deliver a speech on “Asset Valuation as a global anti-corruption Tool”.
He is expected to highlight the negative effects of corruption on economies in various forms and propose ways to use valuation and standards professionally to fight corruption.
