Alan Kyerematen: Ghana eyes US$25 billion from export in five years

The Trade Minister says government is determined to fully transform the fortunes of the economy to be economically independent

Ghana is seeking to earn over US$25 billion from exports over the next five years as part of efforts in transforming the economy, Minister of Trade and Industry Alan Kyerematen has said.

According to him, the government is determined to fully transform the fortunes of the economy to be economically independent.

Speaking at the 5th Ghana Industrial Summit & Exhibition 2022, the sector minister said just like other developed countries, Ghana is looking at breaking away from solely depending on cocoa and gold to break into the global market.

“We have established across the country 67 business resource centres and almost 200 advisory centres throughout the country so that any individual who want to go into business, wether into industry or any form of enterprise can go into and walk into a government supported one stop facility to receive support,” he said.

“The other pillar which is important is enhancing export, we are now talking about the depreciation of the cedi, and its all about the value of our resource , under the National Export Production Development Strategy we are projecting that we will earn US 25 billion dollars in the next 5 years,” Kyerematen added.
