Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has reiterated the need for the country to invest more in skills training and development.
He said technical and vocational education and training (TVET) remains critical to empower the informal sector and enhance Ghana’s economy.
The Asantehene made the call during a courtesy call on him by the Council of the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development.
Established by an Act of Parliament, the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED) is expected to spearhead the government’s vision to engender job creation and industrialisation.
This is expected to be done through effective technical and vocational education and training.
The Asantehene observed Ghana’s economic growth can accelerate if government pumps enough investment into technical and entrepreneurial education.
