Others were plans to establish National Unemployment Insurance Scheme to provide temporal financial support to workers who had lost their jobs and a two billion Ghana cedi Guarantee Scheme to allow businesses to access low interest credit.

President Akufo-Addo said: “All of these reaffirmed our determination to save lives, jobs and livelihoods, revitalise our economy, and safeguard the future of our country.

“I assure you that, under my watch as President of the Republic, Government will continue to work to create a diversified, transformed economy, and fashion a conducive business climate that will deliver development and prosperity for all Ghanaians.
