Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr. Muntala Mohammed, has urged Japan to build the capacity of local entrepreneurs instead of giving out monies for project implementation.

At a media briefing on the National Kaizen Project, funded by the Japanese Embassy and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), he said capacity building is essential to Ghana's socio-economic development.

“As an individual, I am completely opposed to the kind of assistance where money is given to us to execute projects,” he stated.

 “I am fully convinced that assistance that helps to build the capacity of our entrepreneurs, which helps to build the capacity of our human resource base, is sine qua non to our socio-economic development and Kaizen could not have come at a better time,” he added.

The National KAIZEN Project is a three-year intervention, aimed at developing the capacity of the National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI) to provide Business Development Services, including the KAIZEN methodology to Micro, Small and Medium enterprises (MSMEs), in Ghana.

Mr. Shigeru Umetsu, the Deputy Chief of Mission of the Embassy of Japan, said the project will contribute to the development of SMEs in Ghana.

“I strongly believe that this Kaizen Project will contribute to the steady development of SMEs in Ghana and that Ghana will be one of the most successful countries of Kaizen at the end of the project in January 2019,” he said.
