Internships in Ghana

Dow is among the three biggest chemical companies worldwide, with products ranging from plastics and packaging, agriculture, building and construction to oil and gas. The company which had operated in Ghana in the past, pulled out in the 1990s and had relied on intermediaries to reach Ghana?s market.

Managing Director of Dow West Africa, Mr Tony Groosman said Africa?s stable economic environment makes it compelling to invest here. Unstable political climate, difficulties in doing business among other- made Dow close its offices in Ghana, Mr Groosman explained.
