Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday reiterated his commitment to creating space for the private sector to grow and generate jobs that Ghanaian youth need.

“Our industrial regeneration, through our policy of one-district-one-factory, our agricultural revival, through the program for Planting for Food and Jobs, targeted infrastructural development, especially of our roads and railways, and promoting access to digital technology are going to be the main avenues for job creation,” he said.

President Akufo-Addo was delivering a speech on the theme “Ghana: A Rising Star of Africa” at an event organized by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin, Germany, as part of his visit to that country, the presidency said.

He said his government had put in place reforms which involved fiscal responsibility and discipline, addressing corruption and unresponsive bureaucracies, focusing on the productive sectors of the economy, and improving the business environment, all aimed at attracting private investment, domestic and foreign, into the country.
