On Monday 27th of June, 2022, Alan Kyerematen launched the Business Resource Centers (BRC) concept to support MSME’s.
In an extemporaneous and passionate six minutes presentation, Alan Kyeremanten made three (3) major inputs, that I have kept listening to all over and over again.
He has not only demonstrated a spirit of leadership but also offered a practical industrial vision, that is a solution to Ghana’s employment and economic woes.
Ghana isn’t a rich country because it has been blessed with massive deposits of natural resources, but because it has great men who probably died with their visions of transforming our raw materials to give rise to jobs and prosperity.
Unlike other occasions that Ghanaians are caught up in hours of listening to speeches, Alan Kyerematen only used six (6) minutes to prove to the world that; great messages can be simple and yet be pregnant with ideas and visions that will lead to sustainable wealth creation.
TRANSFORMING OUR NATURAL RESOURCES:
First and foremost, his practical presentation gave me an insight into transforming our natural resources for nation-building.
Ghana and for that matter Africa, have been endowed with many natural resources, yet can’t match nations like China, Singapore, South Korea, and Japan, in terms of development and prosperity.
Alan Kyerematen has indeed opened my eyes to the possibility that with the right policies and industrial creativity, our natural resources can be transformed through the running of factories or some kind of industry.
This industrial vision is key to Ghana becoming prosperous like China, South Korea, and Japan have done.
EMPOWERING MSME’s TO ADVANCE INDUSTRIAL CREATIVITY:
Secondly, he made yet another interesting analysis by stating clearly that nations like China, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, have all invested their resources in building their Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSME’s) base.
They have over the years invested in raising entrepreneurs and resourcing them to advance industrial creativity, add value to raw materials, and produce to meet the demands of their people and the world at large.
Thirdly; he also created the awareness of the public on why the state can’t meet its revenue targets.
Simply because it has paid less interest in the local and informal sector.
Which probably forms about 80% of our GDP.
Because the government has not invested that much in resourcing these MSME’s, it is very difficult to generate revenue from them.
It will just be like “reaping from where you haven’t sowed’.
Nations like China, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore have focused on building their informal sector to advance industrial creativity and have become prosperous.
Throughout his distinguished career as a public servant, Alan Kyerematen has remained focused on this industrial vision as the number one pillar to build a robust economy.
There’s therefore, a clarion call on all well-meaning Ghanaians to rise to the call of this humble personality and embrace this industrial vision and Ghana can close the gap between the able and disabled, the graduates and illiterate, the poor and the rich, to mention but a few.
In doing this; Ghana will not only be on a path of prosperity but will also be securing the economic freedom of the next generation.
I am making an altar call on all citizens of Ghana and delegates of the NPP to embrace Alan Kyerematen’s candidature when he decides to contest as the next Flagbearer of his political party.
His industrial vision is what can create jobs for the teaming youth and also bring prosperity (cash) to mother Ghana and Africa at large through AfCFTA.
The Presidency of Alan Kyeremanten will ensure that executive power is directed 100% through industrial job creation activities that only lead to food security, job security, and national security.
Alan Kyerematen is God sent at this very dying moment,
with a vision that unravels the mystery of Ghana’s employment generation (jobs) and prosperity (cash).
Let us allow Alan in, to Allow cash into our homes, businesses, Ghana, and Africa at large.
