The Senior Presidential Advisor, Mr Yaw Osafo Marfo, has called on the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) to focus on enhancing its competitiveness globally. Speaking at the inauguration of the GIMPA Training and Consulting Directorate, which is a merger of two existing directorates within the Institute, Mr Marfo stressed the need for GIMPA to be highly dynamic, adaptive, and responsive to national, regional, and global development situations.

He encouraged GIMPA to think globally and grow its market beyond Ghana. According to him, prioritizing the promotion of the French language is essential for GIMPA’s competitiveness in the global business market since Ghana is surrounded by Francophone countries.

The establishment of the Directorate is timely, as significant work is being done to reform the Public Sector in the country to improve service delivery to citizens. The Presidential Advisor commended GIMPA for its contribution to the development and implementation of the country’s National Public Sector Reform Strategy (NPSRS 2018–2023).

Mr Marfo announced the award of a consultancy service to GIMPA under the Public Sector Reform for Results Project. The consultancy service is for the Review of the Curriculum of Civil Service Training Institutions and Building the Capacity of its Facilitators in Performance Management and Leadership.

For the most part, Mr Marfo charged GIMPA to position itself as a partner to provide the requisite skills and knowledge for persons working in various civil and public services to make the ongoing reforms a reality. He also urged GIMPA to focus on developing innovative training programs for the informal sector to improve efficiency.

The Rector of GIMPA, Professor Samuel K. Bonsu, assured the public that the Institute was well-prepared to provide advisory services to the Government and other institutions through orientations, seminars, and capacity building to enhance their effectiveness.

In conclusion, the Director of the Directorate, Professor Charles Amoatey, emphasized that the training programs, including leadership skills, and foundations in general management, had been developed to enhance sustainable growth. He also expressed his belief in the expected impact on the executive education landscape through creativity, teamwork, and quality delivery to maximize growth.
