The Suame Magazine Industrial Development Organisation has signed a Memorandum Of Understanding with the Kofi Annan ICT centre to acquire 100 computers to set up an IT centre at the office of Suame magazine to train stakeholders in Information Technology.
The Organisation is also planning to collaborate with the United Nations Development Organisation to set up an industrial village where the workers will be taken through formal education and training by professionals as well as lecturers from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
The President of the Organisation, George Asamoah Amankwah who spoke exclusively to The Statesman in Kumasi on Tuesday as part of preparations to inaugurate the organisation stated that the Suame Magazine Industrial Development Organisation has been able to acquire some hectares of land at Asonomaso near Kumasi for the relocation of their office.
He said the relocation will ensure radical expansion of the industry.
Mr Asamoah Amankwah said the initiative came as a result of government's recognition of the key role that the private sector plays in the advancement of the nation's economy.
He said the organisation planned to secure loans to support their activities and resuscitate collapsed businesses of their members. He added that the SMIDO has drawn up a long term industrial action plan for the Suame magazine which will be a guideline for a successful business.
