Groupe Nduom is continuing its commitment to long term investments in the Ghanaian economy. The Upper West Region, will in this coming week, witness the launch of massive Groupe Nduom investments in a region considered to be the poorest in the country.
It is the single largest private sector investment commitment by a Ghanaian business, truly unprecedented in the region.
Groupe Nduom is all set to outdoor some of its variety of companies in Wa and other parts of the Upper West Region throughout next week. The companies are those in the Financial Industry: GN Bank and GN Life Assurance; Media, First Digital Television (which includes over 30 channels); Manufacturing, FreshPak and GN Electronics; Technology, Qualtek; Real Estate, Yorke Properties. This visit will mark the beginning of the construction of a hotel and affordable homes in the Wa area by Groupe Nduom.
These companies are all housed in a newly-built Groupe Nduom Regional Office situated in Wa. The official launch of the Regional Office will be done by Groupe President and Chairman, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom on Wednesday, May 4th 2016.
Senior management personnel of the Groupe, including Senior Vice President, Mrs Yvonne Nduom and others will participate in this event. Before the commissioning, the Groupe Nduom team will pay a courtesy call on the Catholic Bishop of Wa.
Groupe Nduom has a policy of investing in areas in need of development and starved of investment capital. The Upper West investments are living proof of Dr. Nduom’s call to Ghanaians to invest and support creation of local jobs.
In the estimation of Groupe Nduom directors, investing in businesses outside the mainstream cities and towns is meant to encourage others to do their part to create value and contribute towards the improvement of lives of people in a region tagged as the poorest in the country.
According to Dr Nduom, with a well thought-out poverty alleviation programme, no region in the country should earn the derogatory description as poorest.
Dr Nduom will also commission newly constructed offices of GN Bank in some locations in the Upper West. They include Bamahu, Loggu, Bulenga and Tumu. The others are Funsie, Busie, Charia and Nadowli . GN Bank is well established in Upper West towns like Hamle, Nandom, Jirapa, Lawra, Lambusie and Gwollu.
Dr Nduom will end his tour of the Upper West Region by attending the ordination of the new Catholic Bishop of Wa on Saturday, May 7th 2016.
