Ghana urges telcos to list
Ghana’s vice President, John Dramani Mahama, has called on telcos to list on the stock exchange.
Mahama said after 10 years of liberalization of the telecommunication sector it was now time for the companies to allow Ghanaian citizens to acquire stakes and to share in the growing influence and gains in the sector.
He said ICT had become a powerful tool to increase the competitiveness of the small and medium scale enterprises.
He added that the government was encouraging SMEs in the ICT sector through initiatives such as technology parks and training programmes.
