Delivering his keynote address, the King of Assin Owirenkyi Traditional Area, Ehunabobrim Prah Agyensaim VI urged Ghanaian companies to embrace competition in business.

He explained that the reason for the continuous conversation on local participation is because Ghanaian companies are almost on the sideline and hate competition.

“Competition is not an enemy game, indeed there is no room for monopoly in an open economy apart from the fact that if we have a monopoly it means you can’t think and progress”.
