Ghana Mobile Congress to Tackle Employment Challenges


 

Foundation Leader of BizGroNet, Edmund Aboagye Safo has declared the 2018 Ghana Mobile Congress as a panacea to help address the unemployment challenges facing Ghana. Edmund Aboagye Safo explained that aside industrialization, mobile phones, the internet and technology are other means of employment which should be discovered. In partnership with the Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT (AITI-KACE), the leader of BizGroNet maintained that the Ghana Mobile Congress has the capacity to enhance the transformation of Ghana into an employment hub to connect to other African countries in a bid to reduce the increasing rate of joblessness.

“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 stated. According to Edmund Safo, the month-long event is packed with exhibitions by innovators and entrepreneurs across the nation, with focus on upcoming technology and innovation.

“The month-long event will give opportunity for people to showcase their innovative works, and bring them together so that we can achieve our agenda, and propose to the government and Ghanaians not to solely focus on industrialization but take advantage of other aspects such as mobile phone, internet and technology”, he added.

The Ghana Mobile Congress 2018 (GMC2018) edition dubbed, ‘Connecting Africa to Create Jobs’ which was launched on Thursday, November 29, 2018 at the Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre for Excellence in ICT, will have trade shows, exhibitions, conferences and start-up awards ceremonies which will run concurrently nationwide at some selected locations till the 29th of December, 2018.

The 2018 Ghana Mobile Congress organized by BizGroNet does not only create job opportunities but also seeks to connect Ghana to the world and place her on the global map through its Trade Shows, exhibitions, Conferences and Start-ups Awards.
