“BLOW YOUR HORNS”, Honorary Consul of Calgary tells Western Region.

“In the same way that you made mention of the Western Region, that we have so much but we don’t blow our horns, clearly, I want to tell you that it’s the truth”. These were the words of western regional minister Dr. Kobina Okyere Darko-Mensah as he interacted with the Honorary Consul of Ghana for the city of Calgary Province and C.E.O of Aomega Group Inc., Magaret Adu.

The honorary consul of Ghana for City of Calgary province Magret Adu and her entourage paid a courtesy call on the Regional Minister and the Western Regional Cordinating Council on Monday, February 10.

Dr Okyere Darko Mensah’s comments was an admission of a statement made by Madam Magaret Adu on how very little is heard about the Western Region in terms of opportunities and prospects, even though it is a resource endowed region.

”I want to tell you that there are so many opportunities here and I believe that when people come to invest they will make good returns”, the minister added.

In reechoing how resourced the region is, Dr. Okyere Darko-Mensah who also doubles as the Member of Parliament for the Takoradi Constituency was quick to add that the Western Region contributes more than 50% to the Ghana’s national GDP with 85% Coconut, 98% Rubber, 100% Oil and Gas, 100% Tuna and 60% Ghana’s fish coming from the region.

He urged Madam Magaret Adu to help in selling Ghana’s Oil and Gas region to the rest of the world, especially Calgary.
