‘Position Strategically To Lead Private Sector Growth’

BAAHThe president of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Dr. Seth Adjei-Baah has urged Ghanaian business operators to strategically position themselves to lead the growth of the private sector in the country.

He explained that Ghana could no longer afford the situation where foreigners come in to invest and then take away the profit to develop their own countries.

The development of the country, he stated, lies in a vibrant private sector led by Ghanaians. Dr. Adjei-Baah said this when he led a delegation from the national office to meet members of the Cape Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry at Cape Coast to brief them on the activities of the Chamber in leading the development of businesses in the country.

The meeting also gave an opportunity for the team to sensitise the members on the need to develop their capacity to compete with businesses from other parts of the world.

Dr. Adjei-Baah further stated that it was about time indigenous Ghanaians lead in partnering with the government in investing in the development of the nation’s economy.

He indicated that the country does not have any future if foreigners were the sole investors in the economy.
He said that the economic growth of the nation depend on the private sector and therefore, commended the country’s efforts on Public-Private Partnership.

He urged members to support the growth of the Chamber in order for it to play its role effectively. Dr. Adjei-Baah commended the government for its support in ensuring the growth of the private sector.

That, he said, would facilitate the creation of the needed wealth needed for the country’s development and transformation process.
He admonished members of the association to develop very good proposals that would enable them to access credit facility from the Export Development and Agricultural Investment Fund (EDAIF) as well as the Venture Capital Fund to grow their businesses.

The Chamber, he said, was in the process of building an industrial zone in the country and urged young entrepreneurs to take advantage of the facility.  From David Yarboi-Tetteh, Cape Coast
