Ghana: 'Most Business-Friendly' Investment Destination Is Our Goal – Trade & Industry's Kyerematen

Ghana received welcome news last week from the IMF: real GDP growth for the country is projected to reach5.9 percent in 2017 and 8.9 percent in 2018, following three successive years when the increase was four percent or less. This is but one of several indicators of economic recovery, according to Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, the Minister of Trade & Industry. Kyerematen was appointed to the post in January by President Nana Akufo-Addo following his election in December 2016. He says, in this interview, that growth is essential for stability – but it must be “inclusive” and “bring everybody along”.

Kyerematen, who competed against Akufo-Addo for the nomination of the New Patriotic Party, is an economist and lawyer who served previously as trade minister and as Ghana’s ambassador in Washington, DC. In 2013, he was Africa’s consensus candidate for the position of Director General of the World Trade Organization.
