Support for indigenous companies needed to create more jobs


Summary short_text

Energy Minister-designate, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh says achieving the Ghana Beyond Aid vision, can only be possible if government and other stakeholders ramp up their support for local companies, to ensure they do not just thrive in Ghana, but flourish in other parts of the world.
The comments were made following a tour of indigenous cable manufacturing company Tropical Cable & Conductor Limited in Tema.
"It's imperative that you cannot shout Ghana Beyond Aid without promoting leadership in Ghanaian business. That is what gets employment. The progress made by companies like Tropical Cable & Conductor Limited needs to be supported by Government to ensure that they don't only expand but to expand and export beyond the shores of Ghana especially in an era of the AfCFTA.".
