The Executive Chairman of the Ghana Community Network Limited (GCNet), Dr. Nortey Omaboe says they remain committed to partnering government of Ghana in pursuance of a strong path of promoting innovation in information technology which will go a long way to contribute to the transformation of the country’s economy.
According to him, digitisation has a critical role to play in the realisation of Ghana’s development agenda, hence the need for all key players in the industry to take advantage of this phenomenon to foster more collaboration and provide support for each other.
Dr. Nortey Omaboe made this known at the world summit Awards forum organised by GCNet which brought a group of experts to revenue innovation projects in Ghana and across the world.
He also lauded the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) for revoking the licenses of some freight forwarders adding that malfeasance by the freight forwarders is set back from the country’s desire to achieve a seamless paperless system.
Lauding the Authority for their efforts, he advised players in the industry to comply with the laws of the land so their businesses will thrive.
The Minister for Environment, Science and Technology, Professor Frimpong Boateng on his part said the poverty gap is a technology gap and no country can grow without the capacity to manufacture.
