The 2018 Ghana Mobile Congress is poised to tackle unemployment issues facing the country, says Edmund Aboagye Safo.
Edmund Safo is the Foundation Leader of BizGroNet. Safo also contemplated that aside industrialisation, mobile phones and the internet should be explored in terms of creating jobs. He stressed that these technologies are a means for great employment opportunities.
Firmly, he believes the Ghana Mobile Congress will boost Ghana’s transformation into an employment hub. And also, connect other African nations in its quest to decrease the rate of unemployment.
Safo said, “The main challenge being faced by Africa and Ghana is unemployment. And people are looking at industrialization and other aspects. But we thought it wise that you can also create some form of employment looking at mobile, internet and technology. We can use Ghana as a hub to connect other countries to make sure that unemployment is reduced. It will also increase our GDP.”
He continued to disclose that the Ghana Mobile Congress is a month-long event. And the event will feature exhibitions from entrepreneurs from across the country. The focus on these exhibitions is on upcoming technology and innovation.
“During this month-long event, we are showcasing anything at the Accra Digital Centre – the innovation that people have brought, the upcoming and existing technology. We are bringing all these people together so that we can achieve our agenda by not going to only industrialisation but there are other aspects that the government or Ghanaians can take advantage of.”
