Ghana’s leading cement manufacturer, Ghacem, has climaxed its 50th anniversary celebration with a presidential ball and a pledge to continue producing quality cement to meet all construction needs.
Speaking at the presidential ball in Accra, special guest of honour, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo reiterated government’s vision of using concrete for the construction of roads in the country.
He further stated that due to growing urbanisation and projected infrastructural development, cement consumption will have to increase, thereby creating more jobs.
The President added that this would help reduce the pressure on the country’s foreign exchange reserves on the importation of cement.
“I want Ghacem to be assured of Ghana’s full support over the next 50 years. Ghana will continue to partner with you, so you live up to your mantra of being the nation builder,” he added.
“There is growing competition which is leading very much to the benefit of Ghanaians” adding that the government on its part, would continue to ensure that the sector has the regulatory support and the friendly business environment that it needs to thrive.”
MD of Ghacem, Morten Gade, said Ghacem’s contribution to building the nation can be seen in landmark projects across the country.
He said “we have demonstrated a track record in quality work and I would like to assure you of our continuous commitment to producing quality cement in Ghana at affordable prices.”
