“The Ministry has started work on establishing a Labour Market Information System, in order to provide relevant information on the unemployment situation in the country,” Nii Armah Ashietey, Minister of Employment and Labor Relations, said.
He was launching a new vehicle maintenance service system by Toyota Ghana Company Limited, dubbed, “Express Maintenance Service.”, at Tema.
He said the government would also like to appeal to reputable companies such as Toyota to provide opportunities for young graduates to undergo attachment, in order to have practical knowledge of what they have learnt in theory.
Touching on the event, he said Toyota Ghana had not only provided the vehicles but had gone a step further to provide quality maintenance services for its customers.
The Minister said he was impressed with Toyota’s activities to help others, especially in the provision of portable water for the people of Afuaman near Amasaman, and the refurbishment of the TB/HIV unit of the Kaneshie Polyclinic.
“I will entreat all corporate organizations to emulate this worthy cause by Toyota-Ghana, to assist the government in the provision of social amenities to Ghanaians”, he said.
Mr. Takahiko Takabayashi, Managing Director of Toyota-Ghana, said the objective of the express maintenance service was to improve customer satisfaction.
“Customer convenience is achieved by drastically reducing the service lead-time of periodic maintenance,” he said.
The new introduction ensures that a vehicle is thoroughly serviced within an hour.
