My 2nd term focuses on creating a strong economy- Akufo Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo stated that the main concern for his second term as President of Ghana would be the establishment of a strong economy.

In his inaugural address today in Accra for a second four-year term, President Akufo-Addo said that a strong economy would generate jobs for young people and improve living standards to the levels expected by Ghanaians.

President Akufo-Addo also urged all Ghanaians to continue to be active participants in growing the economy of Ghana.

 President Akufo-Addo said: “Today, our economy, even in the face of the global pandemic of COVID-19, continues to show resilience and a much faster rate of recovery than originally envisaged, and was, indeed, one of the fastest growing economies in the world in 2020.

Ghana remains one of the continent’s most desirable destinations for foreign direct investment, as is evidenced by the presence in the country of some of the largest conglomerates in the world.

The key concern of my second term will be to create a strong economy, to undergo a structural transformation into value-added activities that will generate employment for our young people and raise their living standards.
