A United States-based Aircraft Manufacturing Company, AXIX GP Inc, is set to train Ghanaian youth in the manufacturing of next-generation hybrid aircraft.
AXIX GP will assist in the development of a permanent S.T.E.M.-based education and professional technician program in Ghana to secure a technologically prepared 21st century workforce.
The company which intends to establish its branch in Ghana [AXIX GP International Ltd] would be situated in the Greater Accra Region.
Chairperson of International Trade Council, Solomon Addai who is leading the company to Ghana said the company’s strategy would be in line with government’s flagship program One District/One Factory policy.
The Chief Executive Officer of Modern World Logistics Ltd said the initiative which has been supported by the Member of Parliament for Anyaa Sowutom Constituency, Dr. Adomako Kissi would create employment for the teeming youth in the country.
“AXIX GP will manufacture prospective technologies in multiple municipal districts and constituencies in accordance with One District/One Factory concept to create more jobs for the youth,” he added.
The CEO of AXIX GP, Laviere Rice, on his part said, the company would engage the public to implement a system of establishing and maintaining a S.T.E.M. trained workforce in Ghana and Africa at large.
“We have a business and products that will create jobs, but we need to ensure that the youth and others have the education and training to compete and sustain employment in the current and future workforce.
“Preparation is the key, and we need the people of Ghana to understand they have a major responsibility in this as well. A Transfer-of-Technology (ToT) only works when the people buy in 100%. This is about the future, and our place in it,” he stated.
