Minister reiterates government’s commitment to support Ghanaian businesses


The Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Ekow Spio-Garbrah has given the assurance that government would continue to support indigenous enterprises to blossom if they are able to promote their products internally and beyond.

He said the promotion of their products should include local expertise used in coming out with the end products for replication in other sectors of the economy.

Dr Spio-Garbrah gave the assurance when he paid a working visit to Reroy Cables as part of his familiarisation tour of some indigenous enterprises in the country.

Accompanied by officials from his Ministry, Dr Spio-Garbrah said although Ghanaian industries are producing a lot of goods, they hardly acquire the expertise that would enable them to specialize at all the stages of production.

The Minister suggested that production of brochures and booklets about their activities would be an added value that would promote their products to people who hitherto had little knowledge of the process.

He said his visit would not only offer him the opportunity to encourage management of Ghanaian enterprises to step up production but also enable him to explain to investors and business partners outside the country the strengths and weaknesses of businesses.
