The first in the series for the Region brought together close to one hundred micro and small business owners and budding entrepreneurs from all over the Abura Asebu Kwamankese District.
The event which was held on 10th July, 2020 took place at the Founders Hall of the District Assembly Office Complex at Abura Dunkwa.
Opening the programme, Mr.
Ernest Brew Paintsil, the District Planning Officer and coordinator of the event, touched on the importance of such an initiative.
He stressed on the importance the District attached to the programme thus the impressive turn out by the participants.
