A team from ISSER led by the Director Prof. Felix A. Asante paid a courtesy call on the Chief Executive Officer of MTN, Mr. Ebenezer Asante at the MTN head office on Friday, 18th September, 2015. Other members of the ISSER team were Dr. Charles Ackah, Head of Economics Division and Mrs. Lucy Ofori-Ayeh, Administrative Secretary.
The purpose of the visit was to discuss potential areas of collaboration between the two institutions. The discussions dwelt on the possibility of MTN providing institutional support for the annual SGER Roadshow and also for commissioned research like “the impact of MTN use on the economy annually and an assessment of customer satisfaction with the use of MTN’s service” The Institute on the other hand, could provide a platform for the company to publicize itself.
The issue of selling ISSER’s publications online through the use of MTN mobile money was also deliberated upon and modalities are being put in place to ensure that this happens.
A proposal is being put together by the Institute detailing the areas of possible collaboration
