Ghana Publishing Company Establishes branch in Kumasi

A delegation from Ghana Publishing Company Limited (GPCL), led by the Board and Management has visited His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, at the Manhyia Palace, to announce the establishment of a branch in Kumasi.

As a symbol of their appreciation, GPCL, led by the Managing Director, David Asante, donated an amount of GHC 100,000 to support the Heal Komfo Anokye Hospital project, a cherished initiative of the Manhyia Palace.

Speaking at the ceremony, as reported by, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II called on the government to prioritise policy initiatives and resources aimed at ensuring the growth and development of the Ghana Publishing Company Limited. Otumfuo underscored the vital role of local publishing industries in preserving cultural heritage and driving economic prosperity.

The Ghana Publishing Company Limited boasts of a rich history steeped in tradition and innovation dating back several decades.

But the company previously encountered financial constraints amidst competition from both domestic and foreign entities operating in Ghana’s vibrant publishing industry.

Currently, massive improvement has been made to restore confidence in the company.

During a visit to the Manhyia Palace by the company’s board, the Asantehene urged policymakers to consider implementing 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 Asantehene encouraged the company to make progress in exercising its duties.

“They gazette laws made in Parliament and the National House of Chiefs. It is our responsibility to see the company develop.

“Management should do well to project the company as expected. You are already doing well by making the company vibrant. You should continue to uplift the industry,” he added.

Speaking to the media later, the Managing Director, David Asante, said “Otumfuo is excited about our coming to Kumasi. The thing is that, state institutions that are not doing well cannot expand so the move shows the good work of the board of directors.

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