The National Democratic Congress (NDC) remains deeply committed to the principles and values of Social Democracy As Social Democrats, the NDC subscribes to a compassionate political philosophy that seeks to create opportunities for all to develop to their fullest potential.
The NDC believes that the pursuit of economic prosperity for all Ghanaians can best be achieved through appropriate regulation and strategic investments. It is therefore committed to using the legal, fiscal and trade instruments at our disposal, in an inclusive effort to safeguard the jobs of today and create the jobs of the future.
Creating a prosperous future for all
We must start with ensuring that Ghana remains an attractive investment destination. This means making sure that our democracy remains safe and stable, first of all. We know that we have robust investment structures and a welcoming environment for foreign investment. So we’re the obvious choice as a gateway to the ECOWAS market for foreign investors. We are creating markets for our local goods, both in the ECOWAS region and further afield.
We will continue our investment in job creation, particularly nurturing entrepreneurship, leveraging technology in our industrial and agricultural spheres, and focusing on making our business environment attractive to investors both local and foreign. We are investing immense time, effort and resources into strengthening our infrastructure – getting these basics right, such as power, roads, ports and so on, is crucial to ensuring that our manufacturers and farmers are connected to their markets.
These efforts don’t exist in isolation – each initiative is a vital building block of the larger plan towards growing Ghana’s economy for today and in the future.
