IMANI Concludes its Investigations: Parliament & Ghana Free Zones Board Failing Ghanaians
"We are very worried that several months after signing a memorandum of understanding with China Hasan, the Ghana Free Zones Board has failed to conduct further checks to ascertain the company's capacity to develop the industrial estate. IMANI's efforts are not driven by any ill-will whatsoever towards China Hasan. In fact, we believe an accelerated effort to find a third, more financially capable, partner on the project can only lead to quicker progress, thus opening up additional opportunities, including sub-contracting opportunities, for many companies. Commensurate with its capacity, China Hasan should be free to pursue any of these opportunities, subject to the same due diligence constraints as all other interested companies.” See more @ http://www.modernghana.com/news/402105/1/imani-parliament-ghana-free-zones-board-failing-gh.html
