2015 has been a prosperous year fir the Jospong Group of Companies and to show appreciation, the group held its annual thanks-giving service to thank the Lord for successes they have chalked.

The event which was held at the Group’s headquarters at Nmai Djorn in Accra brought together representatives from several other companies outside Jospong Group, including state officials.

This years’ service was on the theme: “Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house that you have brought me thus far”.

In an address, Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong, Chairman of Zoomlion and Jospong Group of Companies, urged government to put the private sector on top of its priority list, to ensure sound economic growth.

To the renowned business magnate, Ghanaian entrepreneurs, if offered the needed support, would achieve tremendous success both locally and internationally.

“Our experiences have convinced us that the Ghanaian entrepreneur is capable of achieving world-class success across all sectors when adequately supported,”
Dr. Siaw Agyepong said.

He said the success of Zoomlion and Jospong Group shows that the private sector is capable of ensuring the socio-economic development of the country if given the space to operate.

He said “as Americans build America so will Ghanaians build Ghana….if we are one, with one language and one mindset, nothing we imagine will be impossible. With the right mindset, the private sector can team up to build a Better Ghana.”
Given the current economic conditions, Dr. Siaw Agyepong said it was imperative for the private sector to work towards drawing synergies in the sector for the development of the nation.


He said a healthy collaboration between the private and public sector is also imperative to the economic development process.

“It is worth mentioning at this point that we have so far enjoyed great support and cooperation from the public sector in general, especially from Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, MMDAs and other government agencies,” the chairman said.

Dr. Siaw Agyepong commended management and staff for their commitment to meeting the company’s goals.

Julius Debrah, Chief of Staff, who was the guest speaker, heaped praises on the Jospong Group of Companies for its good works in the country.

He said the thanksgiving service held by the company was appropriate, urging the management of the company to continue the annually event.

Mr Debrah commended former President Kufour for supporting Zoomlion since its inception in Ghana, urging politicians to support the private sector to grow in the country.

“We should make sure that the private sector becomes the engine of growth irrespective of the political party in power. Let’s celebrate our own and support it to grow for the good of the nation,” he said.

Joseph Siaw Agyempong said in 2016, two million waste bins would be distributed to homes in a bid to curb littering and enhance quick waste collection efforts.

The company hopes to distribute two million waste bins every year from 2016.
