Information Minister visits Ghana Publishing
The Minister of Information, Mr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, has advocated capital injection into the operations of the Ghana Publishing Company Limited (GPCL) in order to enhance its profitability.
He said such a move would ensure that GPCL competed with other vibrant publishing firms in the country. Mr Abdul-Hamid noted that so far three foreign firms had expressed interest to partner the Ghana Publishing Company Limited (GPCL) in its operations.
The minister said the companies, which comprised Spanish, French and Indian, were requesting strategy papers to study the company’s strength, weakness and viability. Mr Abdul-Hamid said this when he and other officials of the Information Ministry toured the GPCL Office in Accra to ascertain how it operated its businesses.
The minister was taken round by Mr David Kwame Dzreke, Managing Director, GPCL, and other staff. The minister said it was prudent to let the public know that the GPCL was viable and could compete with others in the printing industry. He said he was elated that the company was able to print 300 copies of last Tuesday’s President’s State of the Nation Address within 24 hours, and same were distributed to Members of Parliament.
