Paperless system extremely beneficial – Freight Forwarders – Starr Fm


The Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders has lauded government’s decision to rollout the paperless clearing system.

The move to introduce the system at the ports followed a directive from the vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia earlier this year.

Even though the implementation of the system which commenced September 4, 2017 was not without challenges, the vice president believed it would curb corruption and reduce the turnaround time for businesses.

The challenges that plagued the implementation of the system forced officials in charge of the system to blend the newly introduced system with the manual one.

Revenue collections at the ports in the first week of September shot up to GHC230 million compared to the GHC130 million which was raised same time last year, due to the new system, disclosed Dr. Bawumia when he addressed an orientation ceremony for National Service Personnel who had been posted to National Communications Authority.

“The results are amazing,” he said.

Commenting on the new system, the Executive Member of the Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders and Chief Executive Officer of E. Cargo Services Ghana Limited, Alex Asiamah  said freight forwarders stand to benefit from the new system more than the government will benefit.

According to him, the paperless system will allow them make some substantial savings in terms of operations.

“…What is happening…we embrace it wholeheartedly because if you can sit in the office and clear containers and do business at the port, it is very, very good. It reduces our cost because sometimes our service charge that comes to us, some of them are the same thing that you use to move staff around to get things. But not moving is good for us and it saves cost,” he told Starr Business.

“Trust me. I know the government will benefit but we the professionals will benefit more,” he added.

Ghana will have female president one day – Nana Addo |



President Nana Akufo-Addo has pledged his commitment to empowering women and girls in Ghana in a bid to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

To this end, Akufo-Addo said his government is putting in place policies that will ensure the girl child in Ghana is encouraged to reach her full potential, for Ghana to possibly produce a woman president for the country.

The president also cited the implementation of the free Senior High School policy, as one that will go a long way to keep the girl child in school.

Speaking at a UNESCO Global Concert in New York, the president added that, because women account for 51 percent of the population of Ghana and in most countries “empowering them is critical to speeding up Africa’s progress.”

“So as president of Ghana, as co-chair of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and as AU gender champion, I am committed to putting in place policies and programmes aimed at improving the development of the girl child in Ghana. I’m equally committed to ensuring access to a minimum of senior high school education for the girl child in Ghana; a policy that has already began to work.”

“I’m also committed to mobilizing support towards ending child marriage in Ghana and the whole of the African continent. Together we can achieve gender equality, empower the women and girls and achieve the global means of the sustainable development goals. And one day we are going to have a female president of Ghana,” he added.

Tema DPSI School celebrates Fancy Dress Day – Starr Fm


Management of Delhi Public School International (DPSI), a private school at Tema in the Greater Accra Region recently honoured five of its students for excelling in this year’s International General Certificate of Secondary Examination (IGCSE) and the A Level examinations.

The students, Vishal Mukesh Thakwani, Pranav Tyagi and Nana Afra for the IGCSE, and Inhee Baek and Kapila Komaleddy for the A Levels examinations came up tops of the entire class year. The Director of the school, Mr. Mukesh Thakwani, in a short ceremony organized at the school’s premises in Tema-Accra congratulated the students profusely for their unprecedented feat which has placed a feather in their caps and testified of the spiraled standard of education which is the preserve of DPSI.

The Principal of DPSI, Mr. David Raj told the media the school was extremely proud of the students and hence the need to properly acknowledge and encourage them for their yeoman achievement. He added that the recognition given to the five students will also serve as a morale booster to the rest of the students to also aim at excellence and do their best to make even higher grades than their forebears.

He indicated, however, that in the coming days, the school will organize another event to properly award the students with certificates and other recognitions to further authenticate the school’s appreciation of their great exploits in the examinations. The school had earlier organized a fancy day in the school which saw the pupils in the primary division of the school adorned in beautiful and carefully selected fancy dresses in a total relaxed atmosphere showcasing boldness and style, a breathtaking sight to behold! The manner in which the young pupils held their gait and the confidence they exuded in a bid to outclass each other in the colorful fancy dress competition held parents, teachers, school authorities and invited guests spellbound. Explaining the reasons behind the institution of such a day in the school, David Raj explained that it was to imbibe in the children, a sense of confidence and initiative.

“All that our children need in their life is confidence, then success is assured,” he added. He said exposing the children to public speaking events such as this, while giving the event a competitive edge, is one of the best ways of ensuring that the pupils do not grow up being timid. He indicated that the programme is also a grand opportunity for the children to gather knowledge from each other which they can apply in other aspects of their lives.

Mr. David Raj was particularly grateful to the parents and teachers for preparing and supporting the children in the exercise. For putting up great performances and showing varied levels of confidence on stage, the Director of DPSI Mr Mukesh Thakwani presented each of the deserving students with certificates to boost their morale.

The day was crowned with a dancing session for the children, with parents and teachers of the school joining in the merrymaking. DPSI Ghana, established in 2010 in Ghana has won the National Spelling Bee competition on several occasions and recorded the highest performance at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in the US.

The school has also added to their several local and international laurels, some outstanding awards from Cambridge International Examinations High Achievers’ Award and American Mathematics Competition (AMC) which was organised by the Mathematics Association of America among others. It is affiliated with the University of Cambridge Examinations and Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi (CBSE).

Free Zones Board organises maiden trade mission to Czech – Starr Fm


The Ghana Free Zones Board (GFZB) has, for the first time in its 22 years existence, organised a three-day foreign trade mission for 17 Ghanaian companies to seek foreign investments.

Consequently, the high powered Ghanaian maiden trade mission, which is led by Mr. Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah, Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry is in Prague in the Czech Republic to leverage the economic relationship between the two countries to attract investments into Ghana.

The trade mission, which is being organised by the GFZB in collaboration with Ghana Embassy in the Czech Republic also seeks to develop partnership between companies of the two countries.

Mission

The trade mission includes Deputy Minister of Information, Mr. Perry Okudzeto, the Executive Secretary of GFZB, Mr. Michael Okyere Baafi, deputy Executive Secretary of the board, Mrs. Kate Abbeo, officials of GFZB, the Chief Executive of Tema Oil Refinery, Mr. Isaac Osei, and some Ghanaian business executives representing the Ghanaian 17 companies.

Some of the companies participating in the mission are Tema Oil Refinery, Tropical Cable and Conductor Limited, Fraga Oil Ghana Limited, Microfinance and Small Loan Center, Wildam Engineering Services Limited, Dihoc Footwear Division Limited, and Phoenix Insurance Limited.

Others are West African Foods Limited, DMT Collateral Management Company Limited and Prefos Limited, and Sarpok Company Limited.

Mr. Ahenkorah praised the Free Zones board for taking the initiative to organise the maiden trade mission which he described as very important and timely.

He explained that the trip was important because it aligned with the government’s economic transformational agenda which among its key drivers is the increase of exports revenue through more exports.

The deputy minister urged the local companies to ensure that they engaged their Czech counterparts in a very meaningful way such that it would lead to the creation of meaningful partnerships.

Rationale

The Executive Secretary of GFZB, Mr. Michael Okyere Baafi told Graphic Online in an interview in Prague that the rationale for organizing the trip was to give meaning to the GFZB’s focus of attracting foreign direct investments and also provide a platform for the participating Ghanaian companies to seek strategic partnerships and also strategic investors with their Czech counterparts. 

He also expressed the board’s determination in exposing local investors to opportunities available under the free zones programme and ultimately encourage them to take advantage of them.

Currently, 56 out of the 201 companies operating under the free zones programme are wholly-owned indigenous companies. This tends to create an impression that the whole idea of the free zones is to target only foreign companies, but that is exactly what the current leadership of the board wants to address.

The Executive Secretary was hopeful that a lot of fruitful partnerships would be formed among the Ghanaian companies and their Czech counterparts.

Free Zones concept

The board is the implementer of Ghana’s free zones concept through the export processing zones (EPZs).

The EPZs encourages businesses to manufacture, process, develop commercial services and export them.

The concept gives tax incentives to businesses that export 70 per cent of their produce and has since its establishment in 1995 played a key role in raising the country’s foreign exchange levels.

As part of the mission, the Ghanaian business executives will Monday tour some of Czech’s businesses such as UNIPETROL, the country’s oil refinery, CZECH INVEST, Tekon Teplice s.r.o.; and MODUS s.r.o.

Ahomka Lindsay to face PAC over perjury |


The Deputy Minister of Trade, Robert Ahomka Lindsay, could be hauled before the Public Accounts Committee for allegedly peddling untruths about the Komenda Sugar Factory, including a claim that factory did not produce any sugar.

This follows a petition by the former Secretary to the Management Board of the Factory, Ransford Vanni-Amoah, accusing Mr. Lindsay of perjury.

Speaking to Citi News, Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, James Avedzi, said the deputy minister could lose his position if such claims turn out to be true.

Robert Ahomka Lindsay

According to Vanni-Amoah, a former member and secretary of the Komenda Sugar Project Management Board, the Deputy Minister committed perjury when he appeared before the PAC to provide answers to a report by the Auditor General pertaining to the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

He petitioned the PAC, citing events, places and dates that the $35 million Komenda Sugar factory operated, asserting that the Deputy Trade Minister told a blatant lie in his submission to the Committee.

“The petitioner is saying that this is not the true fact. He is saying that actual sugarcane was put into the process from the beginning up to the end which means that Sugar Produced from sugar cane, but that is not the position held by the minister [Ahomka Lindsay],” Mr. Avedzi said.

The PAC Chair added that matter could end up in Parliament if the deputy minister did not show the needed remorse should it be demanded of him.

“If it is found that it [the allegation] is true, and he has admitted that what he said was not true, we will give him the opportunity to apologise and if he refuses to apologise then we will refer the matter to Parliament because it amounts to perjury and he can even lose his position as a minister.”

The committee is still studying the petition at the moment and it hasn’t “taken a decision to invite the minister yet,” Mr. Avedzi added.

When the current New Patriotic Party government was in opposition at the time of the factory’s commissioning, the viability of the $35 million-factory was called into question, with claims it was simply a vote-buying ploy.

Mr. Ahomka Lindsey continued these concerns, suggesting that Komenda Sugar Factory will lie idle longer than expected challenges, including the lack of raw materials, have stalled full operations.

He has claimed that the variety of sugarcane planted on lands secured for sugar production at Komenda did not contain the appropriate levels of sugar content for production, though persons from the Mahama administration disputed these claims.
