Ho, June 07, GNA-Ms. Mawuena Dumor, Corporate Affairs Manager of

Scancom Ghana Limited, operators of MTN on Saturday reiterated the

commitment of the Company to working in partnership with government to

bring “superior value” to the country's economy.
She said towards this end, the Company ensured that it remained the largest

corporate tax payer in the country.
Ms Dumor said this at a day's seminar on Information Communication

Technology organized by the Ho Polytechnic branch of the Ghana National

Union of Polytechnic Students (GNUPS) with support from GCOM, Ghana

Limited, a Ho based ICT firm.
The seminar was on the theme; “ICT, an essential tool for development” and

attracted students from tertiary and second cycle institutions in the Ho

Municipality.
Ms Dumor said MTN, as an ICT entity had exceeded its expectations and

ensured that all projects under its social responsibility were completed towards

enhancing the economy to promote national development.

She said the Company spent about 21 million US dollars as corporate tax

and also spent about 450 million US Dollars as capital expenditure on telecom

infrastructure since coming into the country.
Ms Dumor said the Company was still expanding its infrastructure with

focus on a drive to push ICT to every community in the country.

“We have started constructing ICT learning centres in some districts with

the knowledge that access to ICT would enhance the economy,” Ms Dumor

said.
She re-emphasized the importance of ICT to socio-economic development

of the country and said “with ICT you can reach that business partner in a

second and make that all important contact or call in no time.”

Ms Dumor observed that ICT had made the world a global village and

expressed the hope contributions being made by MTN would go a long way to

improve the country's economy for accelerated growth.

Mr Makafui Nyamadi, Volta Regional Manager of GCOM urged students to

develop interest in ICT so that they could fit into the world's technological

advancement.
He however, warned against the use of ICT for fraud and other immoral

acts which he said were illegal and could only lead the individual to jail.

Other speakers included, Professor Clement Dzidonu, World Technology

Award Winner and Ms Tamara Dzormeku, Miss Malaika, 2008.
