Government is determined to reduce travelling time on Accra-Kumasi Highway – Asenso-Boakye


The government is determined to reduce travelling time on the Accra-Kumasi Highway with the construction of four bypasses along the stretch, Mr. Francis Asenso-Boakye, the Minister for Roads and Highways, has stated.

He said due to population growth and urbanization, it had become necessary to divert the road from certain major towns known for heavy traffic during peak hours, creating a lot of inconveniences for travelers.

The Minister, who was addressing the media after inspecting progress of work on the Osino, Anyinam, Enyiresi, and Konongo by-passes, said the Accra-Kumasi Highway was the most important trunk road connecting the two largest cities in the country.

‘In all, we are constructing four different by-passes of which we have given to eight local contractors and each by-pass has two lots and I have had the opportunity to visit all the project sites,’ he explained.

He said apart from the main road there were several other interventions, including drainages, underpasses and overpasses, as well as a
40-metre-long bridge over the Birim River.

‘So far, I must say that I am fairly satisfied with the progress of work.

I am saying this because I wish the progress of work would have been faster than this, but we are also operating in an area that has suffered a lot of galamsey activities and also waterlogged and swampy areas which has hindered the speed of the work,’ he observed.

The Minister was, however, positive that the pace of work would increase, having tackled most of the obstacles, including compensation for those whose farms were affected by the project.

‘Should this be completed, it is going to transform the transportation situation on the corridor by reducing the travelling time drastically,’ he reiterated.

The Ministry of Roads and Highways acting through the Ghana Highway Authority has provided funding through the Government of Ghana (GOG) Consolidated Fund for the dualisation of the Accra-Kumasi Highway between Apedwa-Junction and Ejisu.

The project is part of the government’s commitment to
improve the road network along the central corridor of Ghana to enhance socio-economic activities.

The project will form part of the National Route N6, which connects the capital to Kumasi, the second largest city.

Prof Boohene advocates amendment of burdensome business regulatory regime


Professor Rosemond Aboagyewa Boohene, the Pro Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), has urged policymakers to amend the existing regulatory regime for micro, small and medium enterprises (smes) to make it easier for businesses to thrive.

She contended that the existing policy, which, among others, required such enterprises to renew their registration annually with information from an auditor was overly burdensome and encumbered the development of budding businesses, and the economy.

Prof Boohene, a Professor of Enterprise Development, was delivering her inaugural lecture on the theme: ‘Entrepreneurship and enterprise development in Practice: Tracking the pathways.’

The lecture connected theory, research and practice supported by practical examples and made a strong case for the need to deliberately support the growth of young enterprises.

‘There are a lot of regulations they have to comply with. They are trying to make ends meet and make their businesses grow and so it sometimes becomes e
ven difficult for them to remember all these regulatory regimes they have to comply with,’ she said.

She, therefore, proposed a three or four-year renewal regime, for instance, to enhance compliance and give respite to budding firms.

She believed that a more friendly regulatory regime will expedite the formalisation of the economy and make it easier to effectively formulate and implement interventions for the industry.

The Pro Vice Chancellor indicated that graduate unemployment was a national security issue, and the country could fall on entrepreneurship to rescue the situation.

However, she observed that entrepreneurs were faced with a plethora of challenges, including limited access to finance, inadequate infrastructure, skill gap, inadequate human resources like mentors and coaches and a limited access to market.

‘They produce the products and sometimes they don’t even know where to sell it. We have the African Continental Free Trade Area. Can we support them to leverage it?’ she asked.

Prof Boohene
called for the provision of infrastructure such as roads and electricity as well as providing the youth with managerial and entrepreneurial skills to thrive.

She called for a genuine financial support programme to give support to feasible and credible businesses or ideas and encouraged people to save and partake in group funding before relying on other sources.

‘Even though there are interventions like MASLOC and NEIP, I believe that the entrepreneurs and the small enterprises will also have to start something and save on their own to supplement what other organisations give them,’ she said.

Prof Boohene has over 27 years of experience in higher education and has significantly contributed to the academic and practical understanding of entrepreneurial processes, innovation, enterprise development and startup ecosystems.

In academia, Professor Boohene progressed from principal research assistant in 1997 to professor in 2019.

From April 1999 to date, she had practised as an assistant lecturer, lecturer, sen
ior lecturer, associate professor and professor of enterprise development at UCC.

She has taught and supervised undergraduate and graduate students in human resource management, production and operations management, international business, industrial organisational psychology, principles of management, entrepreneurship and small enterprise development.

80 per cent of production costs linked to foreign exchange dynamics – Chamber of Cement Manufacturers


Mr. Frédéric Albrecht, the Chairman of the Chamber of Cement Manufacturers (COCMAG), says 80 per cent of the production costs of cement manufacturing are linked to the foreign exchange.

He said the importation of 80 per cent of the raw material used in manufacturing cement made a compelling case for them to adjust factory prices to reflect the prevailing exchange rate in the country.

The Chairman said this during the consultative stakeholders’ forum organised by the Ghana Chamber of Construction to deliberate on the proposed legislative instrument on cement pricing regulation.

The forum included presentations from industry experts, interactive discussions, and opportunities for networking with fellow industry professionals.

The forum also provided an opportunity for stakeholders to share their experiences, insights, and recommendations on the proposed Legislative Instruments (LI) on cement pricing.

Thus, foreign exchange had a substantial impact on cement prices, and the currency’s depreciation against t
he primary trading currency forced producers to raise the price of cement. 

’80 per cent of our cost structure is directly linked to hard currenies, including dollars and euros,’ he said.

He said the importation of raw materials, including clinker and gypsum, was done in foreign currencies. 

Other foreign exchange costs, including port charges, purchasing prices and applicable taxes, also impact the prices.

The Chairman said when these factors increased, then they would also be forced to increase the factory price of cement.

He said the attempt to pass an LI to regulate prices would not address the incessant increment in cement prices since there were close to a thousand (1000) people in the cement manufacturing and distribution value chain.

Mr. Albrecht also said the Bill lacked the required pricing mechanisms for manufacturers to publish their prices as it was required of them. 

The Ghana Standard Authority (Pricing of Cement) Regulators Bill 2024 aims to streamline the regulation of the pricing of c
ement for wholesale and retail distribution.

The Bill also aims to prevent gouging in the pricing of cement and promote competitive practices within the cement industry. 

The proposed Bill, spearheaded by the Ministry of Trade and Industry, comes against the backdrop of an incessant increment in cement prices and other building materials.

Cement prices commenced the year selling at GHS 85. 00, but the prices increased to GHS 110 at the end of June, 2024.

Mr. Emmanuel Cherry, Chief Executive Officer for the Ghana Chamber of Construction Industry, urged the government to address the prevailing challenge of the cedi depreciation in order to address the incessant increment in cement prices.

He advised the government to seek the opinions of all relevant stakeholders in the construction value chain and incorporate their views on how to improve the Bill.

Stakeholders slam proposed cement price regulation bill as unconstitutional


Stakeholders in the construction ecosystem have cited constitutional anomalies in the proposed Legislative Instrument (LI) to regulate cement prices in the country. 

The stakeholders, notably the Ghana Chamber of Construction Industry (GhCCI) and the Ghana Chamber of Cement Manufacturing Association (COCMAG), have indicated that the current Bill is unconstitutional. 

Mr. Emmanuel Cherry, the Chief Executive Officer for GhCCI, criticised the methodology of presenting the bill to parliament. 

He said the Ministry had not engaged key stakeholders to seek their input on the bill, which was a prerequisite in the law-making process.

Their comments come against the backdrop of the proposed bill by the Ministry of Trade and Industry to regulate cement prices. 

‘We are representing the entire construction industry: professionals, artisans, trade associations, as well as academia,’ he said. 

Mr Cherry said the challenge was that the proponents of the Bill had not consulted major stakeholders in the drafting of th
e Bill.

‘The composition of the Committee to regulate the prices of cement does not include major stakeholders, including our Chamber,’ he added. 

The CEO said that the law that established the Ghana Standard Authority (GSA) did not have any mandate pertaining to price regulation; therefore, any attempt to enable the Authority to regulate cement prices was unconstitutional. 

He called for the drafting of a Consumer Price Protection and Competition Law to give credence to the GSA’s ability to legally regulate cement prices. 

Mr Cherry said with the exception of cement manufacturers, it was unclear how the prices would be controlled with respect to the other entities in the cement manufacturing and distribution value chain. 

The Ghana Standard Authority (Pricing of Cement) Regulators Bill 2024 aims to streamline the regulation of the pricing of cement for wholesale and retail distribution.

The Bill also aims to prevent gouging in the pricing of cement and promote competitive practices within the cement in
dustry. 

The proposed Bill, spearheaded by the Ministry of Trade and Industry, comes against the backdrop of an incessant increment in cement prices and other building materials.

Bishop George Dawson-Ahmoah, the Chief Executive Officer for the Ghana Chamber of Cement Manufacturing Association (COCMAG), reiterated that the Bill was unconstitutional because it was not hinged on the ‘parent Act’ of the GSA. 

He said the Ministry had never engaged his outfit on the proposed Bill, adding that the exclusion of their input would render the enforcement of the bill difficult. 

He urged the Ministry to withdraw the Bill, re-engage the relevant stakeholders, and relay the bill in parliament.
