Ghanaians urged to invest more in technology to boost economy

With scientific and technological advancement having a significant global impact, Ghanaians have been urged to embrace technology in order to grow the economy.

Greater Accra Manager for TECNO Ghana, Michael Mireku Akoto, has therefore commended the government’s efforts, but called for additional investments in the sector to help deepen economic growth.

Speaking to Joy Business at the unveiling of TECNO’s new product, Camon 19 phone, Mr. Akoto said the investment should be done from the scratch to expand the economy.

Ghana’s Information, Communications and Technology sector continues to play a key role in the broader economic growth.

Industry experts estimate that the ICT sector in Ghana currently is valued at about $1 billion and may reach $5 billion by 2030.  The sector includes telecommunication service providers, internet service providers, software OEMs, and training institutions.

The new Camon 19 series phone comes in four models namely; the Camon 19 (Cl6); the Camon 19 neo (CH6i); the Camon 19 pro (CI8); and the Camon 19 pro 5G (CI7/CI7n).

The new Camon 19 models boast of a 50 megapixel pro portrait camera, 64 megapixel ultra-night camera and a 2 megapixel front camera.

Brand Manager of TECNO Ghana, Ernest Sonkor, said TECNO was committed to the Ghanaian market and would therefore continue to introduce phones and devices that meet the needs of customers.

The Brand Ambassador for TECNO in Ghana, Livingstone Satekla, popularly known as Stonebwoy, for his part, said it had been a great experience, seeing TECNO evolve relentlessly throughout the years.

“I am extremely honoured to be part of this giant step forward in design and innovative technology, closing the gap between professional camera and smartphone photography.

“The incredibly unique design and slim appearance which comes with a dual-ring, camera layout is definitely a great fusion of technology and fashion which continues to prove how TECNO is committed to bringing innovative technologies to its users,” he stated.
