Kasapa is committed to sustainable devt- MD
Ho, May 23, GNA - Mr Robert Palitz, Managing Director of Kasapa Telecommunication Limited on Tuesday reiterated the company's commitment to ensuring sustainable development in the country. He said that was why every cedi the company saves goes into expanding coverage or keeping prices down.
The Managing Director, who was speaking at the official opening of the Ho Customer Service Shop said it means that costs must be kept under control if prices were to remain within the reach of the average Ghanaian, adding that no cedi gets sent out of the country. He noted that Kasapa was without question the value leader in the telecom industry in the country in terms of its fairness and the rationality of its services.
Mr Palitz said, but in order to maintain that position for mutual benefit, the company needed the cooperation of " local leaders" who, he said, were demanding higher permit fees to allow the services in their areas.
He said this was the company's most difficult problem, especially in the Volta Region and as a result many parts of the region were still without the company's services.
Mr Palitz, who talked about features and benefits associated with Kasapa said the company knew how difficult it was to keep in touch with one's family, friends and business associates in the country and has therefore introduced the Kasapa Voice Message Service. He said the new feature comes with no activation fee as activation was automatic and has no monthly charges.
Mr. Palitz also announced the Kasapa Affordable Aviation Initiative in which it partners with the local people all over the country to develop ultra-light airplane landing strips to benefit the community with access to tourism, training, agricultural and health services. He therefore said the company would provide technical advice and reasonable construction funding to re-establish the airfield in Ho. Mr Joseph Kwaku Nayan, Deputy Volta Regional Minster in a speech underscored the importance of telecommunication to the socio-economic development of the country.
He expressed gratitude to the company for having decided to be close to its customers through the customer service shops and called on the company to consider reaching the northern part of the region.
