AGI congratulates President-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo
The National Council and the entire membership of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) have extended their heartiest congratulations to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party for winning the December 7 election.
“We are proud to say that for the seventh time running in our fourth republic, Ghana has once again stood out as a beacon of democracy among many African countries,” the AGI said in a statement signed by its President, James Asare-Adjei.
“Indeed Ghana has traversed a challenging path in building a strong democracy and the success of our recently held elections deepens our democracy,” it said.
The AGI said business and investor confidence had been consolidated and expressed the hope that the trust reposed in President Akufo-Addo by Ghanaians would be a source of inspiration in the delivery of his mandate as president.
AGI also congratulated the Electoral Commission, political parties and Ghanaians on holding peaceful and successful elections.
“We trust that the challenges facing the private sector will receive the incoming government’s utmost attention and quickly get to work to save suffocating industries as we work together towards achieving a sustainable economic development.
“AGI is ready to work with you and your government to achieve the industrial objective of this country,” it said.
While congratulating the President-elect, the AGI also requested an engagement within the next one month to further discuss key initiatives and proposals for promoting industrial development and private sector growth in Ghana.
