PEF urges government to create enabling environment for businesses
Nana Osei-Bonsu, Chief Executive Officer of the Private Enterprise Federation, has called for an enabling environment to ensure that businesses thrive no matter their location.
He said issues with serious rural urban migration could be controlled if businesses could progress in rural environment, adding, “We need to keep people in their neighbourhoods”.
Nana Osei-Bonsu told the Ghana News Agency during a day’s forum on the State of the Private Sector in Ghana in Takoradi that there was the need for structured programmes aimed at making people stay at wherever they find themselves.
He added that creating the enabling environment was imperative for the growth of the private sector, particularly the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises, which had direct contact with the citizenry and had the power to change rural urban drift.
Nana osei-Bonsu said the PEF under the auspices of the Konrad Adeneur Stiftung, was soliciting views from business entities which would be developed into a policy draft for consideration by government on ways to improve the private sector to ensure its survival and growth.
