Expose investment opportunities in Yendi to Morocco businesses – Aliu Mahama to the Ambassador


The Member of Parliament (MP) for Yendi, Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama, has passionately appealed to the Moroccan Ambassador to Ghana, Imane Quaadil, to facilitate an arrangement to expose the vast investment opportunities in Yendi to the business community of Morocco.

The MP said: “Yendi is a commercial hub endowed with vast resources, including vast arable land for agriculture, skilled youth, mineral wealth, human resources, tourism, and arts and culture. It has one of the best cereals and tuber produce which can meet the interest of investors from Morocco and other parts of the world”.

Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama made the call at the skills exhibition fair held in Yendi as part of the official visit by the Moroccan Ambassador to Ghana.

The exhibition is a prelude to a planned establishment of a state-of-the-art skills development centre in Yendi by the MP and the Moroccan Embassy in Ghana for the transfer of knowledge, skills and exchange of technical cooperation.

Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama, who is also the Board Chairman of the Ghana Integrated Iron and Steel Development Corporation, said Yendi and its environs host a large percentage of iron ore in commercial quantity, ready to be harnessed to create the needed employment opportunities for the hardworking youth of Ghana and to boost the industrialisation drive of the government.

He expressed the confidence that the bond between Yendi and the people of Morocco would explore issues of mutual interest such as sustainable agriculture, skills development, education, essential minerals, human resource, tourism, arts and culture, among others.

The ambassador said Ghana and Morocco have come a long way, and that will ensure that the Moroccan Business Community will take advantage of the business opportunities Ghana is endowed with, especially the Yendi Constituency.

Ndan Ya-Na said the high rate of youth unemployment was a major concern to the people of Yendi, and needs urgent attention. He also noted that the youth unemployment is attributed to inadequate skills development for the youth, as well as low ICT education.
