STRCCI teams up with its counterpart in Trinidad!!
The Sekondi-Takoradi Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry, also known as (STRCCI) is establishing links with the Energy Chamber of Commerce of Trinidad and Tabago to enable it assist its members to take advantage of the Oil and Gas Local Content Bill when it is passed into law.
Mr. Ato Van-Ess, Chairman of the STRCCI stated this at the chamber’s third bi-monthly meeting at Takoradi on Thursday.
He said the link would allow the STRCCI to benefit from the experience of the Energy Chamber of Commerce of Trinidad and Tobago in the energy sector.
Mr. Van-Ess said the STRCCI is thinking seriously about the establishment of an enterprise development centre to equip and prepare its members with skills to take advantage of business opportunities in the oil and gas industry.
He claimed there was also the need for a Skills Development Centre to train manpower for the energy sector.
Mr. Van-Ess advised members to involve the chamber in negotiations with investors in order to protect and safeguard them from fraudsters.
Mr. Cadmond Dadzie, Treasurer of the STRCCI, appealed for the speedy passage of the Local Content Bill into law, adding that it was essential that the bill is passed into law so that institutions that would be mandated to implement the law could do so.
I have to say I’m loving the partnership, working together and movement towards a better and brighter future of Ghana as well as Africa as a whole continent.
Let us move forward YENKO!!
