Activa International Insurance has renewed its commitment towards supporting the growth of small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) by protecting them against investment losses.
In that regard, the company has promised to continue to provide effective and innovative facilities to help SMEs to mitigate losses and reduce risks they face as a result of their investment.
Mr. Solomon Lartey, Deputy Managing Director of Activa Insurance, in an interview at the third SME Ghana Awards held at the State Banquet Hall last Wednesday, said the company believed that SMEs needed to be given the needed boost to operate effectively and expand to support the economy.
Mr. Lartey supported the view of the Deputy Minister of Trade, Murtala Mohammed Ibrahim, who enumerated some of the challenges, including risk-taking, which SMEs in Ghana face, when he delivered his keynote address at the ceremony.
Mr. Solomon Lartey, who lauded the objective of the ceremony that honoured SMEs in Ghana, explained that his company share the view that SMEs must be given the needed boost to help create employment, reduce import, reduce the pressure on the cedi against foreign currencies, especially the dollar, and also improve the country’s foreign exchange earnings.
“It is for these reasons and more that Activa International Insurance, as part of its corporate social responsibility, supported the organisation of the third SMEGA Awards to identify and reward SMEs who have excelled in their various sectors,” he added.
Activa Insurance, he said, has introduced high standard insurance products that would protect the investments of companies and individuals in Ghana and in over 40 countries across Africa.
