“I have spent a lot of time over the last three years engaging the various business leaders and groupings and though I have a clearer and better understanding of the business environment, I believe the Ghanaian business community is doing well,” President Mahama said.
“Lately as I go round the regions, I also make it a point to interact with business groupings to help them understand government policies and to hear first hand their concerns and impediments to business expansions,’’ he added.
President Mahama indicated that to help government achieve its transformational agenda, the role of the private sector remains key.
