Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has lauded international money transfer company TapTapSend for its leading role in growing remittances to the country.
Bawumia made his remarks during a visit to the TapTapSend booth at the just ended 2023 Ghana Investment and Opportunities Summit in London, under the auspices of the Ghana Investment Promotion Authority.
The Vice President praised TapTapSend for its commitment in driving digital growth in remittances into Ghana.
Responding to the remarks by the Vice President, Mr Darryl Abraham Mawutor, the Growth Director in charge of Africa for Taptap Send Africa said they have been motivated to do more in their operations to increase remittances to Ghana.
“We’re therefore helping people to send money instantly and securely at no fee by deepening our connections in Ghana and positioning our operations to attract more remittances to support economic growth by making money transfer seamless and safe,” he said.
“The basis of what we’re doing is to create employment by increasing access to financial technology services, get people to make money and grow the Ghanaian economy,” he added.
Mawutor added that Taptap Send plans to intensify its public outreach on financial literacy while improving customer experience across the world by addressing challenges that people face in transferring money to Ghana.
To that end, Taptap Send has established a call centre with a staff strength of 29 persons that speak Ghanaian and other international languages, to help satisfy the needs of customers in a marker of growing cybersecurity concerns.
Speaking further, Mawutor said he was confident that when the Government and all stakeholders in the finance and technology sectors work more collaboratively, Ghana would become a hub to attract more fintech companies and remittances.
“There are a lot of people with the requisite skills who only need the opportunity to work with global companies with the right policies and conducive environment and support systems, and once we have this, Ghana’s finctech sector will transform,” Mr Mawutor said.
TapTap Send allows you to send money from the diaspora back home to Ghana in minutes, making the process easy and convenient.
