A former Chief Manager at the Bank of Ghana, Dr Johnson Asiama is urging government to discover and explore new export markets in Africa.
A lot of the Ghana’s export currently goes to Europe and the Americas.
According to Dr Asiama, who is also currently the Director of Macroeconomic Management at the West African Institute for Economic and Financial Management, competition and a temporary meltdown in those European economies should make African countries to look inward.
He explained Ghana in particular has few products that are doing extremely well in some African economies and hold prospects in others as well.
He told Joy News such a strategy will also help strengthen our local currency.
