Groupe Nduom president rallies support for promotion of made  in Ghana goods 

Story: Today Correspondent 

The president of Groupe Nduom Ghana, Dr Nana Kweku Nduom has called on Ghanaians to support the ongoing Made in Ghana campaign being championed by the Government of Ghana.

According to the young entrepreneur, Made in Ghana promotion is very central to changing the structure of the country’s economy from an import to export-oriented economy.

He noted that, rice and sugar imports constituted a significant share of cargo to Ghana.“Our import bill for rice alone is in excess of USD 600m”, he said.

He  pointed out that, such imports impact hugely on Ghana’s macro-economic stability, job creation prospects, port logistics management and local capacity development.

The Groupe Nduom  Ghana president made these observations  while speaking at the launch of  Made In Ghana Expo Canada in Accra on Friday June 28, 2024. 

Speaking on the theme; “Repositioning Made In Ghana Products  and Services to Attract Foreign Investments”, Dr Nana Kweku Nduom, said, his outfit was interested in the measures  government was putting in  place to mitigate the impact of such  influx of imports  on local businesses, while still promoting international trade.

He recounted the impact of overdependence on imports  during the Covid period where many foreign supply chains were disrupted.

 According to him, many importers  continued to bear the brunt of high freight costs,  and the effect of a weak currency. This, he said, fed into the high rate of inflation Ghana experienced recently. 

Dr Kweku Nduom said, Groupe Nduom’s belief in made in Ghana products started in the 90s when his father, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom  who is the Global Chairman of the Groupe hired  local talent to grow his business  when he returned  from the  United States of America Ghana  to establish Deloitte and Touche Consulting .

Within the hospitality  sector, he said, the Groupe Nduom hotel chain, Coconut Grove “is noted for serving local dishes across all our facilities in Ghana”. 

He added: “We serve our cherished customers locally made fruit juices, locally raised chicken and locally grown rice.  Our hotel in Accra and our office structures around the country are clad with locally made bricks that have  become our landmark in the architectural landscape in Ghana”.

To this end, he said Groupe Nduom was excited about prospects of promoting local products  and services in Canada and beyond .

    How about an update on attempts to secure funds to recapitalize GN Bank and reinstatement of GN Bank license.

    Is Groupe Nduom lobbying MPs to get funds in the budget to pay contractors who GN Bank made loans to finance infrastructure with funds from IMF bailout funds?
