The Western Region Coordinating Council Investment Center has welcomed a partnership from the Takoradi Technical University to promote business development in the region.
Furtherance to this laudable collaboration, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the Western Region Coordinating Council and the university, to undertake research and develop business proposals and plans for metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies in the region, to inform prospective investors about opportunities abound.
Western Region Minister in an exclusive interview with Skyy News emphasized how proactive the arrangement is, in putting the region on the spotlight for investors, not just in the country but across the globe. He disclosed that the current framework is limited to only six districts [Mpohor, Wassa East, Shama, Amenfi Central and two others] in the region, the success of which, will inform decisions to extend it to other parts of the region.
“I’m looking at foreign direct investment, local and national investment. From agriculture to mining, manufacturing, whatever that we have the resources to provide as a feed-stock for that industry” he detailed his expectation of the initiative.
Vice Chancellor for the Takoradi Technical University, Rev. Prof John Frank Eshun disclosed that the Faculty of Business is championing this initiative on behalf of the university. He added that the university will give out its best to support the transformation of the region, through innovative business ideas and marketing.
“What we have come to realise is that, we have a lot of challenges in the region, and as a university there is a need for us to carry out research and try as much as possible to address these issues. We thank God that we have a good support from the Regional Minister” rev. Prof. Eshun emphasised.
Coordinator of the Western Region Coordinating Council Investment Center, Charles Cobbinah mentioned that his outfit will continue to play that facilitation role in promoting business development and growth across sectors of the Ghanaian economy.
