MTN Ghana, as part of its transition from a telco to a techo or technology company, is partnering with the Petroleum Commission for the Local Content Conference and Exhibition this year.
The company sees this as a partnership that could continue into the future because it believes that the extractive sector has driven them to innovate and produce higher standard solutions for their industry.
Benedict Bentil Senior Manager for Enterprise, Marketing and Portfolio Management for MTN says this partnership was necessitated because they are investing in local content and helping grow Ghanaian talents, which MTN intends to support into the future.
He added that MTN intends to drive innovation and technology across Africa and Ghana and this is the right opportunity to partner with those in the upstream sector and find out what their demands are so they can serve them better.
“We believe the upstream sector, particularly the extractive sector has constantly driven us to innovate and produce higher standards for their industry.”
“They have higher expectations when it comes to innovation and also the fact that they are investing in local content and helping us drive and grow Ghanaian talent in the country is quite admirable.”
“As MTN and from a Ghanaian, African point of view, we intend to support today and into the future.”
“We are excited to be part of this for the first time and we feel that it is long overdue.”
