Francis Agbonlahor speaking at the Economic Forum
Francis Agbonlahor, Managing Director of Guinness Ghana Breweries Limited (GGBL), has reiterated the need for government to create an enabling environment for businesses to drive economic growth.
Speaking at the Ghana Economic Forum held recently in Accra, he said, “An enabling environment comprises a stable political and economic regime; the right infrastructure such as accessible roads, consistent and reliable supply of utilities and support systems, especially for Small and Medium-scale Enterprises.
“Also critical as a country is the need to develop the human resource capacity of government agencies to equal today’s business demand and challenges.
Mr Agbonlahor also encouraged government to provide targeted policies and maintain open dialogue with industries, stating “these will enhance the growth of the private sector, leading to flourishing economic prosperity for all.”
The Ghana Economic Forum is an annual event that brings together industry chieftains and thought leaders in civil society to discuss and debate key issues affecting the Ghanaian economy and offer solutions to enhance the achievement of the country’s economic development plans.
