Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen
Alan Kyerematen, The Minister for Trade and Industry has said that the Akufo-Addo government was still committed to building an economy that is resilient and robust enough to grow the private sector to produce Ghanaian owned multinational companies.
He believes this will subsequently take Ghana from begging for aid and put the country in a situation of “Ghana beyond aid,” as the vision of the president is.
He said, you know and have seen the good work of our government as we have worked and continue to work on the fundamentals of the economy because we believe that an improved macro-economy is a basic requirement for stimulating the investments we need for the rapid expansion and growth of the Ghanaian economy, and the generation of wealth and jobs.
Mr. Kyeremanten said this when he delivered the keynote address at the sod cutting ceremony for the construction of an office complex, which will be used as the National Secretariat for the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Accra.
He said due to prudent economic management, the growing strength of the economy has moved above its initial target of 6.5%, from a growth rate of 3.6% in 2016 to about 8.5% in 2017, which is the highest in 6years as well as the stabilization of the cedi.
