- Nana Addo is calling for value addition on the produce Africa exports to the world
- The president is currently in Zambia for trade talks and diplomatic ties
President of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo is of the belief that Africa risks remaining an arguably poor continent if leaders fail to add value in the production of goods and services.
Gracing the 53rd Zambia International Trade Fair, the president posited that made in Africa products are bound to fail if the continent fails to adopt an industrialization agenda.
One of the major challenges faced the exports of goods and services in Africa has been the ability for such products to meet international standards – a development which has seen China and the EU ban Ghana and other African countries from exports.
But Nana Addo is hopeful that the issue of job creation and a stable economy can be achieved if governments in Africa invest heavily in the value addition of raw materials.
Nana Addo is currently in Zambia to deepen trade ties and also engage in bilateral talks with Zambian business men and women.
