Nana Kobina Nketsia, V Omanhene of Essikado Traditional Area, has appealed to companies springing up in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis to operate in line with professional and Ghanaian standards to achieve excellence.
He said it was important for the companies to let Ghanaian practices reflect in their operation as a way of projecting its image to the international community.
Nanakobina Nketsia, who was opening a branch office of the KPMG International Cooperative in Takoradi on Thursday, expressed joy at the re-establishment of the company to build the capacity of the human resource base to enhance development.
The KPMG is a global network of professional firms providing, audit, tax and advisory services operating in 150 countries and employing 138,000 professionals.
Mr Joseph Winful, Senior Partner of the KPMG, stressed the need for business entities to work hard to complement government’s efforts in providing quality training for Ghanaians to work in the oil and gas sector.
He said though people claim to have trained for the sector they lack specific skills to work in particular areas and this calls for support by the private sector. GNA
