An economist, Dr. Sidi Ali, has charged the government to improve private sector businesses in the country to create an enabling environment for employment and other job opportunities.
Dr. Sidi Ali indicated that the leadership of the country must lay down effective mechanisms that will produce decent jobs for the youth.
According to him, this will help to avoid the mass involvement of youths in unsustainable and indecent jobs like Galamsey that keep deteriorating lands and natural resources.
He stressed that due to the economic circumstances and unemployment rate of the country, most of the youths are involved in illegal mining activities, cybercrime, and cyber gambling, which he said is quite unfortunate.
He underscored the need for the government to create an enabling environment for private sector growth to ensure the creation of more job opportunities and reduce the unemployment rate in the country.
Dr. Sidi Ali noted that the government must reduce the tax rate on private businesses to reduce the cost of doing business; electricity tariffs and access to credit must all be affordable to ensure the expansion of the private sector for better job opportunities.
