Unilever Ghana has begun matching its commitments with investments into its business to ensure constant and reliable supply of its products to the market.
Subsequently, it has commenced the packaging of its powered soap, Omo, locally in a move that is creating both direct and indirect job openings for many Ghanaians and helping to transfer skills and technology in the process.
A Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Carlos Ahenkorah, said while keeping its focus on the customer, the government would encourage Unilever to consider building linkages with local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in an industrial sub-contracting framework that would enhance their capacities and provided jobs.
According to him, such partnerships are at the core of the government’s industrialisation agenda, which is made up of 10 major projects and targeted at providing expansion in the industrial base and facilitating creation.
“The government will continue to collaborate with the industry to enable the private sector to contribute its quota to the economic development of the nation while it opens its doors to the private sector to deliberate on issues that affect the development of the sector,” he added.
