On Wednesday, July 20, 2022, the leadership and membership of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) engaged the leadership of Parliament in a dialogue session to deliberate on how the work of Parliament impacts on Industry.

Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu. Also in attendance was MP for Ellembele and Ranking Member on the Trade, Industry and Tourism Committee of Parliament, Hon. Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah.

In his address, AGI President, Dr. Humphrey Ayim Darke underscored the need for the dialogue meeting, explaining that due to the critical role of Parliament in advancing the country’s development agenda, it is crucial for the institution to periodically engage with industry in order to appreciate their concerns.
