Mr. Alan Kyerematen, the Minister of Trade and Industry, has urged Ghanaians to put their faith in the careful management of the country’s economy, which has, despite all the odds, fared better than peers throughout the current financial crisis.
He said that despite the challenges the nation would confront in 2022, the actions taken with backing from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) would help things improve.
The Minister encouraged Ghanaians to remain optimistic about the future because 2023 had a lot of potential while speaking at the Calvary Charismatic Church in Kumasi.
He compared Ghana’s current situation to the problems in other nations throughout the world.
At a time when renowned economies throughout the world were in ruins, he commended God for His mercy on Ghanaians.
“Find out from even the most advanced countries like the UK, United States of America, Germany or France, from north to south, east and west, go and find out some were queuing for bread, petrol and cooking oil. These are even rich nations, but for God’s grace, we never queued for petrol.
“This was not because of our might or knowledge or government power, it was by the grace of God”, The Minister urged Ghanaians to express gratitude to God for His mercies shown to them.
Additionally, to welcome 2023, Mr. Kyerematen paid visits to the Faith Gospel Church, Family Chapel International, St. Cyprian Anglican Cathedral, and Calvary Charismatic Church (CCC).
To complete his aspirational industrialization program, he recently commission a number of factories.
