The Chartered Institute of Supply Chain Management (CISCM) has organized an induction ceremony to induct 96 members into the institute, as part of activities marking World Supply Chain Week.
The ceremony appreciated the inductees for their support in the development and growth of the supply chain industry.
Professor Kofi Osei Frimpong, a Fellow at the Chartered Institute of Supply Chain Management, emphasized the need to prioritize the supply chain industry due to its contribution to national development. He highlighted that Ghanaian businesses would have collapsed if authorities had no knowledge of supply chain management and its benefits.
Professor Frimpong further noted that Ghana's inability to understand the supply chain had led to the borrowing of huge sums of money from the International Monetary Fund. He urged the inductees to broaden their scope and stay up-to-date with the industry in order to understand the dynamics of the business side.
Additionally, he urged companies to produce local content to boost Ghana's economy.
Mr Awuku Sam, Vice President of CISCM, congratulated all 96 inductees and urged them to contribute their best to the growth of the supply chain industry.
He praised the Chartered Institute of Supply Chain Management for its commitment to Ghana's economic growth.
Notable figures among the inductees were Mr Seth Kwame Acheampong, Eastern Regional Minister, Professor De-Graft Owusu-Manu, and Professor Aaron Lawson.
