Addressing the management and staff of Dzata Cement, Mr. Kyerematen applauded them for building an eco-friendly factory. He also appealed to Ghanaians to support the factory because it’s a success story of Ghanaian entrepreneurship.
“I’m appealing to Ghanaians to support the factory. It’s in line with the vision of President Akufo-Addo in helping indigenous entrepreneurs. Let’s support the first-ever wholly Ghanaian-owned cement factory. It’s the success story of Ghanaian entrepreneurship”. Mr Kyerematen said.
He was highly impressed by the fact that the company is led and run by a Ghanaian management team.
