Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, has said that the Akufo Addo led government is doing quite well in restoring macroeconomic stability.
Speaking at the opening of the Ghana Investment & Opportunities Summit in London, Dr. Bawumia revealed that plans are in motion to formalize the economy through digitisation.
Dr. Bawumia, who leads Ghana’s digitisation agenda, spoke of the success in land administration, national identification and an integration of the country’s database.
“We are in the process which will be completed in December this year of integrating the digital property addressing systems with the emergency number of the police, ambulance or fire service”, Dr. Bawumia said.
“We want to do this integration because it makes a lot of sense so that when you call the emergency services they will know exactly which address you are calling from.”
The Vice President also acknowledged the huge progress made in the mobile payment interoperability which he said would enhance government revenue generation.
“With the mobile payment interoperability, Ghana has moved to become now the leading country in Africa as far as mobile money payment is concerned. It gives us the basis and the platform to really include everybody in the delivery of financial services.”
