Access Bank MD challenges SME’s to be at the forefront of Ghana’s economic development
The Managing Director of Access Bank (Ghana) Limited, Dolapo Ogundimu, has called on Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) to lead Ghana’s economic advancement.
According to him, the recent spate of technological changes, global competition, the deregulation of markets, and the changing demographics of the work-force are good reasons for entrepreneurs in Ghana to develop sustainable business practices with long term perspectives in mind.
Addressing Public and Private Sector leaders at the just ended Ghana Economic Forum in Accra, Mr. Ogundimu, noted that even though political leadership is important for economic prosperity of any nation, proactive and responsible leadership from the private sector, which employs about 90% of the economically active population in Ghana, is a greater catalyst in achieving economic prosperity for all Ghanaians.
Meanwhile, Access Bank (Ghana) has over the past three years invested in excess of $276 million in key sectors of the Ghanaian economy. The Bank recently financed landmark projects for the VRA, ECG, TOR and NHIA in addition to several private companies in the manufacturing and trade sectors.
