On Friday, 24th December 2021, Hon Kobby launched the Third Edition of Western Xmas Trade Fair and Expo 2021 at the forecourt of the Takoradi Mall. His statement on the day was not different from the position he has held and stood for when it comes to business and trade. Private sector focus through public sector engineering to constantly create the enabling and conducive business climate for growth and success.

He indicated that, the Western Xmas Trade fair and Expo 2021 offers Small and Medium Scale Enterprises the opportunity to promote and sell their products as well as to meet potential investors to help grow their businesses in the Region. Although, by attestation, COVID-19 has adversely affected economies all over the world; Big or Small businesses alike, to revamp, no business activity should be ignored. There is therefore the need to promote Small and Medium-Scale Enterprises in the wake of the current global economic downturn.

He submitted that, national policies and programmes, since we assumed office, have typically been drafted through participatory processes, to address critical challenges in the country. Sector-based policies, action plans, and regulations are consistent with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Ghana Beyond Aid agenda has since not been occasioned as just a mantra but a deliberate call to drive all and sundry along a path of ‘business self-actualization’. Under my leadership, the WRCC, since April 2019 has focused on 3 pillars as our contribution to the spirited Ghana Beyond Aid call: the Enterprise Western Region, Entrepreneurial Governance and Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) + Youth Empowerment.

He reiterated that Western Region has all it takes to create the needed wealth and prosperity. He urged all, especially the youth to be mindful of the “YouStart” initiative, as an avenue of support for their start-ups as well as already established small and medium-scale businesses. He encouraged all to be business minded because our focus and target must be production, productivity and wealth creation.
