Executive chairman of Krif Ghana Limited, Rev. Kennedy Okosun has advised owners of businesses to pay particular attention to the specifications of the products they import, to offer their customers value for money.
According to him, Ghanaian businesses do a lot of importing than exporting, and that creates a lot of trade imbalance, which has direct impact on the foreign currency situation.
Importers he said, must therefore, ensure they only import products that meet international standards.
“They must insist that whatever they are importing meets international benchmark in terms of standardization,” he emphasized.
Reverend Okosun also noted that it is fraud to sell products which do not meet international standard.
The KRIF Ghana Executive Chairman was delivering an address to open a Workshop and Product Exhibition on European quality in Accra.
The workshop, provided a platform for stakeholders and customers of the stationery industry to be abreast of new developments and innovations that provide value for money and offer excellent customer experience about quality products.
The forum was also for Krif Ghana to interact with partners, stakeholders and customers to make known solutions that Krif products offer and their benefits. It was also to get customers’ concerns addressed.
Rev. Okosun used the occasion to assure customers of Krif Ghana’s excellent customer experience and products that offer solutions, added value, and value for their money in 2018 and beyond.
He pledged that Krif is determined to stop the trend where customers are taken for granted with inferior goods by other suppliers.
“Our campaign is to ensure that other companies and vendors do not parade the market with inferior products at the disposal of the customer,” he said.
Participants at the workshop included representatives of the banking and hospitality industries while products on exhibition included Olympia money counting machines, fire-proof and burglar-proof safes, binding machines, cash registers, smoke detectors, stationeries, and alarm systems and sophisticated office equipment.
