ACCRA, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Wednesday says if Ghana should succeed, it will be a function of a strong, creative and innovative private sector and that his government’s policy for the country’s growth and development is geared towards creating a good business environment which will enable the private sector to flourish.
“That is why we are putting all our cards in that particular basket. We want, therefore, to do all we can to create a good business climate for investors like yourself, not just for you to feel secure but also for you to be able to do good business,” he said when the Managing Director of Guinness Ghana Limited (GGL), Francis Agbonlahor, called on him at his Flagstaff House office here Wednesday.
Agbonlahor was at the Presidency to congratulate the President and the people of Ghana on the successful election of December 2016, and also on the occasion of the 60th Independence anniversary celebration on March 6.
President Akufo-Addo applauded the company’s decision to expand its operations into the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) market. “I believe that the future of our country is intimately tied up to the regional market that ECOWAS represents,” he added.
“We want to work together with business so as to develop our country. We are not in the business of business. You are not going to have competition from us. Ours is to govern and provide the regulatory framework and policy framework that will allow you to do business. You have in us honest and loyal interlocutors who are trying to promote business.”
