In a speech at the inaugural event of the 2017 European Development Days Conference under the theme; “Making gender and the youth the Private Sector’s business,” the president revealed that his administration is working very assiduously to ensure that Ghana remains the most business-friendly economy in Africa and across the world.
“It is the competitiveness of our enterprises, in the agricultural and manufacturing sectors, that will determine our capacity to create wealth for our youth and women, and wealth in our society," Nana Addo argued.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s cost of doing business index is said to have dropped marginally since 2017 mainly due to the economic policies that government has introduced in the “Asempa” budget. This budget has so far seen various tax removals and policies aimed at shoring up the fortunes of the private sector.
Nana Addo is also expected to visit Belgium where he will be holding high level talks with top politicians like the Norwegian prime minister, Charles Michel. This will see Nana Addo also deliver a speech themed “making gender and the youth the private sector’s business”.
From the US to Germany, Nana Addo is expected to join several African leaders in the G-20 Africa Partnership Summit where he will take the opportunity of meeting the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. But Nana Addo will not be going alone, he will be traveling along with the foreign affairs minister, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway together with other ministers of state.
Nana Addo’s foreign visit follows a recent one he just ended concerning member states of the ECOWAS region where he deepen bilateral talks with them and also assured them of Ghana’s resolve to ensure that West Africa remained a viable economic force.
