The mission of the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Ghana is to create and maintain an enabling entrepreneurship environment that promotes vibrant small and medium enterprises to enable them contribute to the growing of the Ghanaian economy.
Speaking at the ceremony, a Deputy Minister of Trade and Industries, Ms. Nana Dokua Asiamah Adjei reiterated that buying Made-in-Ghana products helps to grow the Ghanaian economy.
She therefore called on the Ghanaian manufacturing sector to help make Ghana, a manufacturing hub in the sub-region.
She expressed the happiness that most of the companies that received awards had gone the extra mile to improve upon their manufacturing processes, packaging and branding.
