A development architect, Professor Kwame Henaku Addo has outlaid Ghana’s development projections and investment potentials on the country’s map carefully highlighting the strengths of each of the 10 regions.

Prof. Kwame Addo whose work spans for about 40 years indicated the goal of the blueprints and maps for development was to enable investors (both local and foreign) study and harness the potential of the various regions.

He added that it was also important for students at the various levels of education to study the maps to obtain a better understanding of the country’s investment potential so that they’ll be able to appreciate the motherland better.

“…the key was to also break down whatever we’re doing so that it can be understood from the basic level all the way up to the tertiary level. That is why we see a smaller map which is actually very educational and that is for the primary schools. For them to have a better understanding of what we have and where Ghana can be. The rest of them develop into maps for JSS, SHS, Universities, Technical Universities, etc” he stated

Professor Kwame Addo’s works were put on exhibition at the National Theatre to be screened by stakeholders and essentially the public who require being educated on the rich essence of the country as well as the various development and investment potential available.

AirtelTigo integration underway!

Published

on

Airtel and Tigo, leading providers of mobile telecommunication services in Ghana, today announced the launch of a joint brand that will advance their commitment to providing the best mobile and fixed telephony service and solutions to consumers and businesses.

The talents, technologies and tactical expertise of Airtel and Tigo are now unified as AirtelTigo. At a staff durbar where the new brand identity was revealed, the CEO for the merged business, Roshi Motman, said the joint brand name and identity is a natural progression following extensive customer engagements.

“The combined name brings clarity and simplicity and continues on the brand journey of former Airtel and Tigo. Our new business is a combination of our strengths and positions us perfectly to bring greater value, deeper insights, and bigger and better solutions to all our customers”, she said.

In earnest AirtelTigo has started to integrate and harmonise their operations – combining resources and services to deliver greater value to Ghanaians. The first thematic campaign as a joint entity, ‘yabͻmu’, which means ‘we’ve joined’ has kicked off and will be rolled out nationwide to engage customers on the commitment of the of the merged business.

Under the bigger theme of ‘One big family’, AirtelTigo has already harmonised calls from the former Airtel to Tigo and vice-versa. Calls charges are now treated as though they are one network.  Roshi Motman, the CEO of AirtelTigo promised more exciting offers for customers of both networks while they integrate into one network.

 

On March 3, 2017, Millicom International Cellular S.A. (“Millicom”) and Bharti Airtel Limited (“Airtel”), announced their intention to merge their operations in Ghana. This was subsequently approved by the regulator, the National Communications Authority on October 2nd, 2017.

As per the shareholders agreement, Millicom and Airtel have equal ownership and governance rights in the combined entity which has now been branded as AirtelTigo. AirtelTigo is the second largest Mobile Network Operator in Ghana with a combined customer base of approximately 10 million and 25 percent market share.

By integrating the two networks, the combined business is expected to provide Ghanaian customers with a major boost in both rural and urban network coverage – in turn translating into better voice quality, high speed data services and reinforced network stability and resilience. With the combined fibre footprint and increased data centres, enterprise customers including both, large corporations and SMEs, would have access to a diverse portfolio of world class solutions. Mobile Financial Services is also expected to be greatly enhanced with combined agent networks and platforms.

Kasapreko named Ghana’s top beverage firm

Published

on

The Association of Ghana Industries (AGI), the umbrella body of all industrial firms in Ghana has adjudged Kasapreko Company Limited as the country’s top company in the competitive beverage sector.

The award was presented to Kasapreko after beating other competitors at the just-ended 6th AGI Ghana Industry Awards held in Accra and graced by the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo.

This award goes to confirm the numerous investments and innovations that Kasapreko has made over the past few years to expand its operations across all beverage portfolios to meet the demands of the growing and dynamic consumers, said Gerald Bonsu, Commercial Director at Kasapreko.

The manufacturer in recent times invested about $70 million to boost its factory production lines, a bold move lauded by industry experts to create more jobs in the Ghanaian economy.

“We have made a remarkable footprint throughout our journey in becoming a total beverage company. Our efforts have always been to satisfy the changing needs of our consumers. We dedicate these awards to all our stakeholders and our consumers for supporting us,” Mr. Bonsu said.

He expressed gratitude for the recognition and also thanked the AGI for putting together the awards which recognizes Ghana’s thriving beverage industry.

Kasapreko is a true representation of an authentically Ghanaian corporate brand. The business was birthed out of a goal to provide quality drinks at affordable prices for the Ghanaian; a vision that has now expanded to a global focus.

As a pioneer of the bitters market, Kasapreko produces first class brands using authentic traditional blends and world class technology in an environmentally responsible manner to satisfy customers.

Its vision differed from that of other alcoholic drink manufacturers in the country, in that it identified the increasing sophistication of the consumer.
