End of July, Bernard Wientjes as Chairman of the DECP Board, formally handed over IT equipment to the President and Executive Director of GEA. This basic IT equipment was provided for and installed through the intermediary of Unilever Ghana, after which DECP reimbursed Unilever for the cost. The equipment will enable GEA to substantially improve the communication with their members.
The GEA had arranged for a lunch at Labadi Beach Hotel and a meeting with a number of their board members, including President Charles Cofie and Executive Director Rose Anang, as well as with some of the GEA staff. In the afternoon the official hand-over of the equipment took place in the presence of local press.
Afterwards, Mr. Wientjes and his wife made a short visit to the offices of the GEA to meet some of the other staff. Andrew Moore, DECP country manager for Ghana, was also present and accompanied Mr. Wientjes.
