Tarkwa, Ghana

The Alliance for Integrity has organised its Compliance Training for Businesses in the mining town of Tarkwa, in the Western Region of Ghana.

The training in Tarkwa attracted 17 company representatives from various towns including Tarkwa, Takoradi and Mankessim who were taken through topics covering the basics of corruption, as well as internal and external measures to counter corruption. The participants also engaged in practical exercises involving case studies and tests focused on addressing corruption predicaments in their respective organisations. At the end of the training, participants were introduced to the compliance handbook produced by the Alliance for Integrity.

A participant from the microfinance industry was impressed with the content of the training programme and was optimistic it would help position his organisation to be more compliant. “I will like to call on business representatives across the country to avail themselves and be trained by Alliance for Integrity in order to enjoy the benefits of operating with integrity including business growth and profitability”, the participant added.

The training was delivered by Solomon Tettey-Akpeng and Mark Ofori Kwafo both of Ecobank Ghana who have facilitated similar programmes since 2016 with the full support of their company. There will be a similar training in Sunyani on 7 September, 2017.
