    Background: GHANA'S COMMISSIONER FOR ECONOMIC AFFAIRS, MR OMABOE OPENED A NEW DRY CELL BATTERY FACTORY IN TEMA, GHANA, ON THURSDAY (14 AUGUST).

    THE FACTORY -- OWNED BY THE UNION CARBIDE GHANA LIMITED -- IS A JOINT VENTURE BETWEEN THE NATIONAL INVESTMENT BANK AND THE UNION CARBIDE CORPORATION OF THE UNITED STATES. REPRESENTATIVES OF BOTH GROUPS WERE PRESENT AT THE OPENING CEREMONY.

    MR OMABOE CUT THE TAPE TO OPEN THE BUILDING, AND UNVEILED A BRONZE PLAQUE TO COMMEMORATE THE EVENT. HE TOLD THE GATHERING THAT THE JOINT SECTOR WAS PROVING A SUCCESSFUL PART OF GHANA'S ECONOMY, THE GOVERNMENT, SAID THE COMMISSIONER, WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS TYPE OF ENTERPRISE PROMOTED INCREASINGLY IN THE COUNTRY, SINCE IT BROUGHT TOGETHER FOREIGN CAPITAL, TECHNICAL EXPERTISE, GHANAIAN CAPITAL AND LABOUR. HE URGED THE NECESSITY OF ENSURING THAT RAW MATERIALS COULD BE PRODUCED LOCALLY TO SUPPLY THE DEVELOPING INDUSTRY.

    AFTER THE CEREMONY, THE COMMISSIONER AND OTHER GUESTS TOURED THE FACTORY, WHICH WILL BE IN PRODUCTION BY THE MIDDLE OF SEPTEMBER.
