Chinese IT giant to establish headquarters in Ghana
China’s leading cloud computing company, Inspur Group Co. Ltd, has chosen Ghana as its preferred destination in West Africa for the establishment of its regional headquarters.
According to Peter Sun, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Inspur Group, the decision by the company to establish its headquarters in Ghana was borne out of the country’s peaceful and stable nature, coupled with an impressive economic outlook which saw Ghana grow at 8.5 percent in 2017, up from 3.6 percent in 2016.
The Inspur CEO made this known on Wednesday when his company paid a courtesy call on President Akufo-Addo on the sidelines of the Ghana-Shangdong Business Conference which was held in Jinan, Shangdong Province.
Inspur, which currently has 57 percent share of global sales in the Artificial Intelligence Server Field, is the fastest growing server vendor in the world, and holds the biggest market share for the sale of servers in China.
In addition to establishing its regional headquarters in Ghana, Mr Peter Sun further indicated that 10 Ghanaian students would be selected and offered internship programmes with the company, with these students being trained to take up jobs in the company’s operations in Ghana and West Africa.
The Inspur CEO revealed that the company would invite to China every year 30 officials from the Ministries, Departments and Agencies to be trained in the fields of cloud computing and data technology.
