“It will play very critical support. The Ghana Enterprises Agency that was accented to by the President last year is a very important institution, this agency’s goal is to really see how we can develop and coordinate the affairs of MSME’s in this nation. For years a lot of the work of MSME’s has been done, and people are doing their things in their corners.”
