“You should as business and financial journalists provide information that will guide investors into taking decisions that will take them into the new digital age,” the CGIA Network Ghana vice-chair told journalists at the training.
Taking his turn to interact with journalists at the training, Chairman for communication and advocacy at CGIA, Mr. Ebenezer Asumang challenged business and financial journalists to cultivate the habit of research and make it a point to contact experts at CGIA when chasing a business story.
He said, “Whether we like it or not the digitization is happening. There is no way it will go back so we must tune ourselves and go alongside it.
“I’m throwing it back to you, business and financial journalists, research, find out, and tell us for us to tune our mind to know what is happening.”
At the training, Global Council Member for the Chartered Global Investment Analysts Institute, Sandeep Kumar joined via Zoom from India while President of the CGIA Network, Mr. Enoch S.K.O Wontumi was in attendance to assure business and financial journalists of the readiness of his outfit to build a good working relationship.
