How NPP, NDC Manifestos Intend To Address Challenges In Trade, Industry And Agriculture

Written By Yaw Ohemeng Kyei - The two main political parties have presented their manifestos for Ghanaians to decide which of them can solve the numerous challenges in the country.

Indeed, both parties seem to have policies which can help Ghana meet its targets in the Sustainable Development Goals. Both have policies that can help Ghana meet the Malabo declaration and AU Agenda 2025 which incidentally coincides with the end of term of whoever wins the 2020 elections. Both parties intend to fashion out policies to help Ghana maximize gains from Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).

AfCFTA Benefits To Ghanaian Businesses

Written By Yaw Ohemeng Kyei - The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) is a novelty by the Africa Union to encourage intra Africa trade. Phase one of its protocol was negotiated in the area of trade in goods; services; working groups and procedures for settlement of disputes. AfCFTA is in line with the vision and targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Intra African trade is 16 percent whilst Africa’s share in global trade is two-point six percent.
