Mr. Augustus Awity, Chief Director of the Volta Regional Coordinating Council, who represented the Regional Minister, urged Municipal and District Assemblies (MDAs) to capitalize on business development projects.

These projects, he suggested, could be packaged by the GIPC as Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiatives to drive the region’s development.
He also called for coordination and commitment among all stakeholders and agencies to harmonize the design and preparation of development plans for the region and the country at large.

As part of the Regional Sensitization Tour, the GIPC team also visited some indigenous enterprises in the region to gather first hand information on their operations.
