The event, organized by the Entrepreneurs Foundation Ghana (EFG) under the auspices of the ministries of finance and business development in collaboration with the Ghana Standard Authority was held at the Banquet hall in Accra on Saturday.
In an interview with Graphic Business after the event, Mr Sam Ato Gaisie, founder of EFG said the event was an initiative established with the aim of promoting the use of quality and the adoption of effective quality management methodologies by Ghanaian enterprises in improving industrial competitiveness.
He said “as the country begins exploring the idea of one district, one factory, is it imperative that we sing the message of quality into the minds of all business people because that is the only way we can effectively compete internationally”.
Mr Mohammed Awal, Minister for Business Development in his address as special guest of honour at the ceremony charged businesses to adhere to best practices that will ensure quality delivery.
