The Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) has welcomed the establishment of the National Ghana Development Bank, hoping it will improve the access to credit industries, following the effects of covid-19 pandemic on the Ghanaian economy.

Speaking at the launch of the 10th Ghana Quality Awards, Chief Executive of the AGI, Seth Twum-Akwaboah reiterated the need for the government to prioritize the full recovery and resilience of local industries.

“Even as we appreciate the government’s efforts in creating an enabling environment for businesses to stay competitive, we believe more can be done to keep businesses competitive and resilient. We also welcome the National Development Bank but government must ensure the bank functions. Survival of businesses must be prioritized,” Mr. Twum-Akwaboah stated.

Director-General of the Ghana Standards Authority, Professor Alex Dodoo, expressed his outfit’s support for the AGI’s Quality Awards. 

According to him, the 10th Ghana Quality Awards complements efforts by the GSA to ensure standards among companies and products.

“Standards are everything. At the Standards Authority, we aim to see businesses becoming much competitive for the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement Area. All that will separate them from other brands and products are standards, and we are leading the course to do just that through partnerships as this,” he stated.

The launch of the 10th Ghana Quality Awards sets the pace for this year’s event which centers on repositioning industries to leverage of the Africa Continental Free Trade Area.
