On Friday, February 2, Mr. Kyerematen, organized the National Economic Summit to rally non-partisan expertise to dialogue on his Great Transformational Plan and how to improve as well as utilise the plan for economic transformation.

Former Minister for Trade and Industry and the leader of the Movement for Change, Alan Kyerematen, has said the solution to Ghana’s economic crises is the stabilisation of the cedi. According to him, stabilising the cedi would solve the problems with inflation which would have a ripple effect on the economy.

“When you are looking at economic revitalisation, the stability of your currency is very important because it has implications for inflation. In particular, it has implications for even the level of growth that you can achieve as a country and the multiply effect” he said.

Speaking on  Joy News’ Newsfile, Mr Kyerematen indicated that his transformational plan which he describes as “the Great Transformational Plan (GTP)” has the policy prescriptions necessary for Ghana’s development.
