‘Govt repositioning mining sector for economic growth’
The Deputy Minister of Energy in charge of Petroleum, Dr Mohammed Amin Adam, has said government will reposition the mining and energy sectors to deepen its contribution to economic growth.
He stated that with the country’s track record in mining, it had become necessary to deepen the contribution of the sector by making it attractive for investments and business opportunities.
Speaking at the just-ended 2019 Ghana mining and energy summit in Accra on June 12, Dr Amin Adam noted that “it has become necessary to deepen the contribution of mining and energy towards the growth of our economy and to accelerate the development of the country by repositioning the two sectors to drive investment and business opportunities. This is imperative because of recent reports about Ghana’s top position among gold producing countries.”
