Mr. Ato Ampiah, speaking at the launch expressed gratitude to all stakeholders including financial partners, suppliers, government and staffs for the collaboration and exceptional support in making TOR achieve this feat.
The 50th anniversary will be marked by year long activities beginning with the launch to climax in September 2014.
