Honourable Nii Adjei Tawiah the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the Korle Klottey Municipal Assembly (KoKMA) has paid a visit to the Accra Technical University (ATU) campus to familiarise himself as the university is key stakeholder within the municipality.
The visit forms part of Honourable Nii Adjei Tawiah's stakeholder engagement program in which he interacts with individuals and institutions within his Municipality for a first-hand knowledge of activities.
The MCE proposed for a collaboration between his Municipal Assembly and the Accra Technical University for the creation of a scientific business data.
The scientific business data will among other things help position the Assembly to deliver effectively, the demands of modern-day business directorate as well as help track and identify existing and potential businesses within the locality.
According to the MCE, “the data, when finalised will help the Korle Klottey Municipal Assembly to track and have complete information on all potential business transactions within its jurisdiction".
"It will further afford business entities and individuals the unique opportunity to request and solicit for the needed services from the comfort of their homes and offices".
He was very confident the data will also help generate revenue for the Assembly as well as other business entities and individuals who ply their trades in the Municipality.
He noted that the university has the people with the requisite competence, experience and expertise and therefore has no doubt they can come up with an effective business data needed by the people and corporate institutions.
On his part, the ATU Vice Chancellor, Prof. Samuel Nii Odai applauded the move by the Assembly to collaborate with his outfits in order to improve service delivery to the people.
