The Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) in the Volta, Oti and Eastern regions has assured industry players of its commitment to ‘shepherd’ them through challenges posed by COVID19.
A statement signed by Mrs Lucy Tenkorang, Vice-Chairperson of the Association for the three regions, said “we are with you…and appeal to management of our various industries in the region to do all they can to put the welfare of their employees a top priority.”
The “Workers Day” statement called for unity to fight the pandemic, which threatens to collapse some businesses.
It urged members to take advantage of opportunities presented by the pandemic and revitalise the region’s industrial support system by adopting local content strategies that prevented leakage of economic investment.
The statement asked members to go by public health guidelines and sanitary practices as government strives to shield the nation from the impact of the Coronavirus disease.
