TIAST Ghana has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Pentecost University to foster collaboration between the two parties on February 3, 2022, at the Phase II Auditorium.  

The conference which was held under the theme “Technical and Financial Support for Agro-Processing,” afforded TIAST Ghana the opportunity to outline the strategies it has put in place to train students with practical skills and knowledge to be able to champion the localization agenda.

 The Head of Training and Development at TIAST Ghana, Mr. Oliver Isaac Ocansey urged the students present to take advantage of the training, mentorship, and exchange programs that will be organized by TIAST Ghana. “We have started partnering with Universities to give students practical training, field trips, mentorship programs, exchange programs, and National Service placements thus all students should take advantage of this opportunity,” he said.

 The Vice-Chancellor of Pentecost University, Rev. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua addressed the students and placed emphasis on how agricultural industrialization can help foster growth and development in the country.

According to him, he is excited about the offer TIAST Ghana is bringing on board, especially the localization agenda where more of the locals will be trained to man and operate the factories TIAST Ghana is setting up in Ghana and the West African continent.

In a speech delivered by the Director of International Business at TIAST Ghana, Mr. Leo Chen, he assured Pentecost University that TIAST Ghana is always on board to cooperate with the University to be able to train and equip students of the University with practical skills and knowledge through its mentorship programs, exchange programs, and the 10-week Master Class.

At the event, an International Business Manager at TIAST Ghana, Ms. Irene Sackey spoke extensively on the importance of value-addition in the agricultural sector. Ms. Sackey admonished the students to take up agriculture seriously, so as to reduce the rate of unemployment.
