A cross section of the public has entreated government to put in place effective and efficient measures to improve the economy.
The improvement, they said would trickle down to the local businesses and advance the livelihood of people.
Mr Kwesi Agyei a Trader in Accra speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Tuesday said due to the surge of the various foreign currencies especially the US dollar and taxes, prices of commodities had increased.
“This automatically affect sales because customers are unable to buy goods,” he said.
Mr Agyei urged government to fast truck its industrialisation agenda by facilitating the one-village-one-dam project, one district one factory to produce many of the imported goods in order to halt its importation.
Ms Elizabeth Lakwelay, a graduate, called on government to expedite initiatives on the affordable housing to ameliorate the housing challenges many people were facing.
“Getting a single room or a chamber and hall apartment is not easy, it is very expensive. The government should make provisions for affordable housing so that we can have a place to call our own,” she said.
Mr Mark Addo, a Pharmacist speaking on health said the government must provide quality healthcare for the citizens.
He said the National Health Insurance Scheme must be strengthened to ensure all citizens both well to do and the less privileged receive good health.
Mr Addo, encouraged the government to make provision of ambulances to the various hospitals in the country.
Some of the people expect government to construct the major roads and renovate the damaged ones.
