Professor Maxwell Owusu, a lecturer at the University of Michigan, in the United States, has observed that the country needed a strong mass of literacy culture to boost industrialisation for holistic development.

He explained that an industrialised country created employment opportunities for its citizenry because the industrial sector was an important employer for both skilled and unskilled labour.

“Industrialisation helps to facilitate technological change and advancement which are crucial for development and effective literacy skills and culture for national development,” he noted.

Prof. Owusu made the observation at the Seventh Kobina Sekyi Memorial Lecture on the topic: ‘Culture, nationalism and nation-building: The role of the Ghanaian intelligentsia.’
