Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has tasked government to commit more resources to restore the vibrancy of Ghana Publishing Company Limited.

Addressing board members during a visit to the Manhyia palace, Otumfuo underscored the vital role of local publishing industries in preserving cultural heritage and driving economic prosperity.

The once thriving Ghana Publishing Company Limited suffered some form of inactivity for years owing to financial constraints.

Currently, stringent measures are being taken for the company to regain its status.

Asantehene urged policymakers to implement supportive mechanisms designed to enhance the operational efficiency and long-term sustainability of the publishing company.

“We have left the company to collapse, but we can revive it and I am hopeful you are making progress since you are a limited liability company”.

“This is an important company because it gazettes everything. If the government supports them with deliberate policies and some percentage of government resources, I believe it will help develop the company, ” the Asante King said.

Managing Director of the Ghana Publishing Company Limited, David Asante hinted of their intention to digitalize their operations.

”From here, we hope to open a couple of regional branches. We also intend to introduce electronic gazette to digitalize all the services of the company,“ he said.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Publishing Company has opened an office in the Ashanti Region to enhance its operations.

The company donated GHC100,000 to the Asantehene to support the Heal Komfo Anokye project.
