The Chartered Institute of Marketing Ghana (CIMG) has called for a review of education policies regarding entry requirements for professional training in the country.

This, the Institute indicated, should be done without lowering standards and compromising on quality.

President of CIMG, Dr. Daniel Kasser Tee said this at the 32nd Annual National Marketing Performance Awards over the weekend.

“Ghana must begin to review its policies on education regarding entry requirements for training professionals without lowering standards and compromising on quality,” he noted.

CIMG also wants Ghana to open its doors for training more professionals with the aim of positioning the country as a supplier of professional services to the larger African market of about 1.2 billion people.

The Institute believes these suggestions, if implemented, will help the country benefit immensely from the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) agreement.

He emphasised that, “Ghana must consciously and firmly establish itself as a nation with both competitive and comparative advantages in education if we are to effectively leverage AfCFTA for growth.”

At the awards ceremony, the Multimedia Group cemented its position as the best media house in the country, by winning three awards.

The Joy and Adom Brands won special awards at the event, whilst Asempa FM’s late afternoon radio talk show, ‘Ekosiisen’ won the CIMG Radio Programme of the Year 2020.
