Dr. Adam expressed appreciation to the Energy Media Group (EMG) for the production of the bulletin on energy matters in the country describing the visit as timely.

‘There is the need for the energy sector to be marketed to the rest of the world of which the media, especially EMG cannot be left out,’ Dr. Adam said. ‘Ghana has the best brains and what we need is to harness our fullest potential inclusively in every facet of our economy.

‘The Government vision is to create the enabling business environment to help local enterprises grow,’ he said after personally subscribing to the magazine to show is commitment.
