Ghana with a population of over 20 million has only about 250,000 fixed telephone lines, mainly in Accra   and Kumasi. With the advent   of privatization in the   telecommunication sector, there are presently six operators providing voice telephony   and the number of telephone lines is said to have increased considerably. In spite of all these, the quality of reception is poor and a greater majority of people in the country are y et to have access to telephone services.  There   are also delays and difficulty in accessing   telephone liines by private businesses.  The problem of inadequate facilities and service delivery in the  sector  thus becomes pronounced.

Against this background, the Private Enterprise Foundation (PEF) commissioned a study on the Provision of Services by Ghana Telecom & the Telecom Sector to the Private Productive Sector.

A roundtable discussion on a study on the Provision of Services   by Ghana Telecom & the Telecom Sector to the Private Productive Sector was organized by PEF to present the findings of the study to the stakeholders on Tuesday 13th July 2004 at Novotel Hotel, at

2.30   p.m.  It was organized under   the   UNDP, under   Component   Two   of   the   Ghana Government /UNDP Promoting   Private Sector Development   Programme with   support from USAID. The objective of the roundtable discussion was to solicit inputs from stakeholders

to enrich the final report of the study.
