Personnel development, the Chief Executive Officer stressed, requires looking into building and enhancing indigenous intellectual capacity for the sustainability of the industry while community development sees a strive to be good corporate citizens, starting with the project-affected communities and going to other parts of the country where Ghana gas services and products are utilized.
“In becoming good corporate social citizens, we’re actually engaged in four key areas – health, education, water and sanitation and sports and in working with our partners and in particular our contractor, Wembley, to install this facility for Agogo and its environs. I think we have taken a good step not just the wellbeing but also to create some communal spirit within the community.
