24-hr economy policy is surest way to grow economy – Mahama

The 2024 flag bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC),  John Dramani Mahama, has reiterated his commitment to expanding Ghana’s economy the much touted ‘24 hour economy’ policy.

Speaking at the end of a two-day policy dialogue by the party at Peduase  in the Eastern Region, the former president described the policy as a game changer, stressing that it would massively improve the economic fortunes of the country.

“The 24-hour economy now remains perhaps the surest way to achieve significant economic expansion, boost productivity, meet demand, curb unbridled imports and its attendant negative effects on our economy and currency and above all generate well-paying jobs for the millions of our people who are without employment.

“I am encouraged by the very positive feedback and input we continue to receive on the proposal from our compatriots in organised labour, academia, business and industry,” he said.

The two -day policy dialogue was organised under the auspices of the NDC Social Democracy Lab, a policy think tank group of the party.

The dialogue brought together many interest groups in the party to fashion out and fine tune public policies under three thematic areas : Human Development, Finance and Economy and Governance.
