Solomon Lartey, Deputy Managing Director of Activa International Insurance, says his outfit will provide financial support to Small and Medium-size Enterprises (SMEs).
The support, he said, will help mitigate losses incurred by the SMEs and reduce their investment risks.
Mr Lartey, who made this known in an interview at the 3rd SME Ghana Awards held at the State Banquet Hall, in Accra, said SMEs must be given the needed boost to help create employment, reduce import and pressure on the cedi against foreign currencies and also improve the country’s foreign exchange earnings.
“It is for these reasons and more that Activa International Insurance, as part of its corporate social responsibility, supported the organization of the 3rd SMEGA Awards to identify and reward SMEs who have excelled in their various sectors,” he said.
Mr Lartey said Activa Insurance has introduced world-class insurance products that would protect the investments of companies and individuals in Ghana and in over 40 countries across Africa.
He presented awards to winners of the Best SME, Home & Office Appliances category and Health Sector categories.
