The Member of Parliament for Ablekuma South, Alfred Oko Vanderpuije, has been able to bring in some members of the U.S-based National Black Masters of Business Administration Association (NBMBAA), a network of business professionals, to partner local and foreign investors in Ghana to create jobs and secure some business deals.
A six-member business delegation, led by NBMBAA President and CEO, Dr Jesse Tyson, is currently in the country to acquaint itself with the business climate and to identify viable sectors it could invest in.
At a short press event to outdoor the business delegation on Thursday, Mr Vanderpuije said even though his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is not in power, the country’s economy and its youth are his main concerns.
“I don’t think it is about whether you are in power or not…government is a continuous process; I am a Member of Parliament and I am a member of the Youth of Sports Committee so I am concerned about the youth.
“I took them [six-member delegation] to the Regional Minister and we also had an appointment with the Minister for Trade,” he said.
The former Mayor said that in February 2018 when about 125 investors arrive in Ghana from the United States, “we will take them to the Presidency, we will take them to other government officials so that we can jaw-jaw and see how we can help our country, I want to help my country. When the dust settles it is about Ghana, our beloved country.”
