“You must now be familiar with government’s flagship policies of ‘One District, One Factory’, ‘One Village, One Dam’, and the programme for ‘Planting for Food and Jobs’, which I recommend to you, as I do areas in water, health, housing, road and rail infrastructure, transport, industry, manufacturing, agriculture, petroleum and gas the exploitation of our mineral wealth of bauxite, iron ore and gold, renewable energy and ICT growth,” president Akufo-Addo added.

“This Government believes that growing the economy the right way, with a level playing field, is the best option for our country’s future, and that is what we are trying to do.”
President Akufo-Addo also said the introduction of the paperless port system, e-business registration system, amongst other intervention by government is helping create a formalized economy for ease in transacting business in the country.
“We do all of this because there is a government in place that believes in the primacy of the private sector, and is working to enhance the prospects of a win-win environment for both private sector and country.”
He also said government has created a business environment where companies cannot just survive, but actually thrive.
