Presidential pitch: Government to dole out GH?50,0

A good start Mr. President, and l know you can still do more. Review all trade agreements, licenses issued to Chinese, Indians, Syrians and other foreign business operators in the City.
Find out why they are here. How many Ghanaians have they employed so far? The type of license and the issuer. Check, their business financial report to determine if such investment is beneficial to Ghanaians. You will be surprised with the outcome.
If we are serious about Ghanaian entrepreneurship growth, we need to protect smaller businesses in the Country over foreign interventions. But when you look at what is happening in the City of Accra, is unfortunate. It is sad, a Chinese who lives in Ghana is freely allow to run stores and import goods to promote China in Ghana’s market. Fellow Ghanaians, would you be allowed to do the same in China? These are Ghanaian jobs. How did they get the license? The answer is corruption. Is this an investment to benefit the Nation’s economy? No. Ghana beyond aid is about effective and efficient management of our internal resources, and then put them to good use to create more wealth. It means every business matters. It, therefore, requires continuous monitoring, directing, organizing, and taking absolute control internally through check and balance to fix the broken system of corruption.
Made in Ghana is the key to reach our objective. We must export more than import. Strong manufacturing policy and appropriate investment restrictions. Ghana’s interest is first to grow our economy.
