Gov't will continue to 'tame' inflation -- President Mahama

Source: Thebftonline.com

President John Dramani Mahama on Monday reiterated the government's commitment to put in place economic measures that will subsequently 'tame' the country's inflation in the coming months.

He said government will initiate more partnerships with the business community to create a congenial atmosphere for business to flourish and create more jobs for the youth.

President Mahama gave the assurance when the business community made up of Ghana National Chamber of Commerce, Association of Oil Marketing Companies, Ghana Employers Association, and the Private Enterprise Foundation among other business advocacy groups called on him at the Castle, Osu.

The delegation was at the Castle to console him on the death of President John Atta Mills and also congratulate him on his elevation to the highest office of the land.

President Mahama said when he was Vice President the late President Mills placed high responsibility on him by offering the opportunity to hold a series of meetings with the business community.

“I have always been with you in the past, and I can assure you that the relationship will continue until we surmount all our challenges and create a congenial atmosphere for business and job-creation for the unemployed,” he said.

He said government has the responsibility to create an enabling environment for business and will therefore pursue it to ensure the survival and development of the business community.

Mr. Asare Akuffo, President of Private Enterprise Foundation on behalf of the other groups, pledged their support for the President Mahama administration, adding: "We will continue to work with you to identify all the challenges and seek solutions to those challenges.”

He appealed to President Mahama to continue with the regular meetings they had in the past, to ensure an effective collaboration.

A politician with an ambition is like a lion on heat. No rational thinking.
