The Theme for this year’s final NPS is “Improving Performance in State Owned Enterprises”
It will be recalled that at the beginning of the administration’s work, major challenges were announced in some SOEs as well as in some sectors of our national economy. The work of the boards, CEOs and staff of these enterprises has culminated in a turnaround in a significant number of SOEs and sectors.
All through Monday in Takoradi at the 5th National Policy Summit, the CEOs of these enterprises and programs will be giving detailed outline of how they have worked to turn these sectors around, the tangible results of their work so far and the significance of these gains to the national economic renaissance.
GFZB for example has recorded over a billion dollars in exports so far, Accra Digital Centre For example has deployed a mechanism that has created over 1000 jobs in their sector alone and State Housing Company 250
The CEOs will subject their works to scrutiny under the auspices of the State Enterprises Commission and it is expected that their stories will challenge others to achieve similar success while offering stakeholders an opportunity to engage and give feedback.
