LOCAL GHANAIAN COMPUTER MANUFACTURERS WANT GOVT BACKING

Computing

Local computer manufacturers have appealed to the government to consider them in the process of national competitive bidding. According to them, anytime they tender in their bidding, the government says their computers are of poor quality and thereby opt for the foreign ones.

"We eventually go through this process and are later told that our computers are not of good quality and government goes in for foreign computers. Why then does government have to say that it wants to boost local manufacturing of computers?" argues the manufacturers.

The manufacturers made this appeal last week in Accra at a one-day workshop sponsored by AITEC and Busy Internet to create awareness of locally produced computers in the country. Among the companies which took part in the workshop were EC Computers, ILS, IPMC, Franco, Radix, Astra and Y3K.
