The government has launched an Enterprise Development Centre in the Western Region to build the capacity of Ghanaian small and medium scale enterprises to fully take part in the opportunities in the oil and gas sectors of the economy. The Centre would help small enterprises to position themselves to take advantage of business opportunities in the new sector to ensure that they were not kicked out on the notion that Ghanaians were not qualified for the industry.
The Centre will provide the small scale enterprises a range of services such as business training, capacity building, advisory services, access to market and information about new developments in the industry.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Minister of Energy and Petroleum, Mr Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah said the Centre was one of government’s initiatives to provide support to Ghanaian SMEs to take active part in the new industry.
The government is being supported by Jubilee partners made up of Kosmos Energy, Ghana; Tullow Oil; Anadako; Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) and PetroSA.
