Ho, July 31, GNA – Some contractors in Ho have noted that they would rather go for private sector jobs than government ones if opportunities were available in the private sector.

This is because the private sector clients offer greater certainty regarding the payment for jobs.

These attitudes became known at a seminar organised for members of the Association of Building and Civil Engineering Contractors of Ghana (ABCECG) and media practitioners in Ho on the theme β€œthe establishment of a Regulatory Body for the Construction Industry in Ghana.”

The seminar is part of a series being sponsored by BUSAC Fund and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) and the European Union (EU).

Due to the current working environment, some contractors were moving away from government jobs whiles some financial institution have said that they would not lend money to contractors undertaking District Common Fund projects.

Mr Edward Amanor, President of (ABCECG) said the establishment of a regulatory body for the construction sector has become imperative to enforce quality performance standards among all stakeholders in the sector.

He said the ABCECG has started a number of initiatives aimed at transforming the construction industry in the country and give it respectability.

Mr Amanor said the Association sees the media as important allies in the transformation processes as advocates for national development.

In his remarks, the Volta Regional Minister, Mr Joseph Amenowode said contractors are important allies to government because they are the ones who translate government's promises into tangible accomplishments.
