Communications Minister to cut sod for 30 Community Information Centres

 The Minister for Communications, Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, will on Monday, June 2, cut the sod for the start of the construction of 30 Ultra-modern Community Information and Communication Centres in different parts of the country.

 



The ceremony would be held at Asuom in the Kwaebibirem District of the Eastern Region.

A statement issued by the Corporate Affairs Office of the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications (GIFEC) said the new centres would augment the existing 241 Centres in some other districts.

The Community Information Centre would serve as a non-profit community resource centre intended to provide business services and community-tailored development information to the communities within which they are located.

It would doubles as a hybrid profit-making tele-centre, the statement said.

“The centres also provide online access to ministries, departments and agencies, other public and private institutions as well as educational institutions,” it said.

GIFEC would equip and manage the centres.

GIFEC, an agency under the Ministry of Communications, is mandated to facilitate the provision of universal access to all persons through the use of affordable ICTs for socio-economic development.
