The Minister for Communications, Dr. Benjamin Aggrey-Ntim has assured the nation that it would soon set a policy that would ensure the smooth penetration of Information Communication Technology (ICT) into the country to boost the nation's economy.

According to him, access to personal computers is pre-requisite to new sources of information and described the commissioning ceremony of the factory as a milestone in the country's drive towards achieving ICT density and use.

Aggrey-Ntim described the recent establishment of Omatek Ghana as a product of resilience, vision and tenacity of purpose. He said that " Early 2007, I paid a visit to Omatek factory and was more than convinced that our people are ready for the quantum leap in technology", stating that the visit was what culminated in the emergence of the Omatek Computers ( GH) Limited.

Welcoming the company to the Ghanaian market, the Minister urged the new firm to be competitive and make its PCs available locally at affordable prices. "I further urge that all Ghanaians should take the advantage of the availability of the Omatek products either as end user or business partner." He said.
