|Summary of the proposed Action :
||1. The Need For the Action
IPractitioners depend mostly on importation of spare parts for their daily operations. However it is regrettable to note that as a result of the government policy on trade liberalization, all kinds of spare parts including fake ones find their way into the country.
2 Proposed Solution to the Constraint In the short term, there is the need to sensitize members of the profession by way of educating them on how to make right choices of spare parts for their operations.
In the long term the need for an intensive nationwide advocacy programme to alert policy makers of their constraint cannot be over emphasized.
3. Implementation PlanNORWOA intends to make a formal appeal to the policy makers to have a second look at the trade liberalization bill on importation with particular reference to refrigeration and air condition parts.
In the same way we deem it necessary to fall on the Ghana Standard Board (GSB) to come out clearly on this issue vis-à-vis the way forward.
Workshops and seminars would be organized to sensitize members on the need to make right choices whenever they make their purchases on spare parts.
(a) All these measures can only be carried through successfully by way of extensive publicity both in the electronic and print media as well as round table talks.
4. Expected Impact
Inferior spare part imports into the country will be reduced
Improve practitioners business operations and standard of living.
Government will generate a lot of revenue from the sector as practitioner business boom
