  • In the light of the nation’s commitment to ensure that Ghana is gradually turned into an industrial hub and appropriately transformed for economic development in West Africa and the world as a whole, efforts to ensure the certification of refined gold and other minerals are necessary to add value to the precious metal before export to other countries for revenue. It is in the light of this reality that the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 unveiled Ghana’s first hallmarked gold bar and issued certification to Accra-based Gold Coast Refinery Limited.

  • Dagbon today has adopted a new posture and dimension, the purpose of which is to promote unity among its citizens and ensure that nothing but development comes to the people.

    The celebration of the Damba festival attracted a varied range of personalities from all walks of life, including the President of the Republic, Prime Minister of Barbados, government officials, parliamentarians as well as foreign visitors.

  • All this goes to point out that we need to come together in peace, whether as political players, economic and social actors or even as religious people. If the contribution of ....

    There is no doubt that every nation requires peace and unity to aspire towards development. No nation in the world, irrespective of the amount of natural resources at its disposal, can progress as fast as possible if the people in that nation do not come together in peace and unity to promote its development.

  • This is why all workers in the country must work hard and be prepared to sacrifice to contribute to the economic growth of the country. Workers and employers, need to collaborate with each other to rebuild the economy and improve upon the welfare of people.

  • If we are unable to do this, then we have all failed in ensuring that security is upheld to its required and logical conclusion.

     In a comprehensive sense, meaningful security in a country implies the assurance that any person or a group of people, including foreigners, found in any part of a country can have a peace of mind that they deserve to co-exist with one another and contribute their quota to the country’s socio-economic development. In this connection, it is essential for all residents in the country to view security matters within the context of the level of care a nation gives to them rather than over-blowing any one-off or a few incidents out of proportion to exaggerate the reality of the situation. When the report about the three, now four, missing girls in Takoradi came out, painful as it was and it is now, it was politicised to create the impression that the security apparatus in the country was not working as expected.

    The African continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCFTA) is aimed at promoting intra-African trade so that member countries will be able to maximize their returns in trade relations among their members.

  • Some of the challenges facing the nation and all the regions and districts are armed robbery, land disputes, invasion of farms by herdsmen and influx of foreign nationals with questionable characters. These are issues that must not be taken for granted or swept under the carpet.

    Written By Dr. Kofi Amponsah-Bediako - It is very important that from time to time, meetings are organised among important stakeholders such as regional ministers, chief Directors and other prominent persons who play critical roles in developing the nation. Such meetings help to draw attention to critical details that are often overlooked because of the belief that stakeholders already know them.

  • The principle of creation and the standards that go with it require all human beings to show interest in standardisation so as to be able to ensure quality products for everyone on earth.

    A careful observation of creation shows that the creator of the universe did not create the universe and all the things in it without conforming to certain requirements that ensure that all created things, natural and man-made, are meant to fulfil certain levels of purpose, quality, usefulness and satisfaction.
