Accra To Host Entrepreneurial Confab

Senzu PixBastiat Ghana, a liberal economy think tank, will hold an entrepreneurship conference at the British Council Hall on September 12 in Accra to facilitate the reduction of unproductive small scale enterprises in the country.

The conference which will take the form of free open lectures for the business community will be on the theme: “Reliable alternative solution for business growth and principle wealth making.”

Speaking to the GNA in Accra, Dr. Tweneboah Senzu, Managing Director of Bastiat Ghana, said the event was a follow-up of a survey his outfit carried out among 100 business executives belonging to various corporate institutions, which indicates that they have lost confidence in such bodies.

The study showed that 75 per cent of the sampled members said it is a waste of resources to pay the association yearly subscription, while the 25 per cent said they pay their subscription because of travelling opportunities.

He noted that business executives join corporate associations to seek for solutions facing their businesses instead of empty advocacy against government.

He said some of these associations, peg their annual membership fees around GH¢1,000 hence the need for such entities to show value for money.

“Bastiat Ghana believes that, even when government policies and strategies are failing, it is the responsibility of the association to see far into the future and identify the opportunities and threat, to adopt mitigation strategies to protect its members through reliable economic and business development innovative strategic information,” he said.

Dr. Senzu said this would guide its members against unexpected economic shocks.

“Our focus and target is to always see to it that unproductive small and medium enterprises, micro, medium and small enterprises are positioned to be scalable and productive to the benefit of the economic growth of Ghana,” he added. —GNA
