The Communications Director of the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi has revealed that the cedi is currently doing well because of the outbreak of Coronavirus.
Sammy Gyamfi said the currency is doing well on the world market because businesspeople are currently not importing goods and that has taken pressure from the cedi.
According to MyNewsGh.com report, the government has not made a single intervention.
“The reason why we are seeing some stability is not because of any economic intervention put in place by this government, 37% of our imports comes from Asia and I’m telling you that there no single economic intervention that is bringing about this stability," he said.
Gyamfi noted that Ghana is not the only country exposed to China when it comes to trade. But Ghana's level of exposure is the biggest.
He mentioned that this is not the first time the country is seeing a temporary, cosmetic so-called stability.
