President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has stated that there can be no future prosperity for the countries of West Africa and its peoples, in the short, medium or long term, if they continue to maintain economic structures that are dependent on the production and export of raw materials.

According to him “we must add value to these resources, we must industrialise and we must enhance agricultural productivity”, if West Africa is to ensure the progress and prosperity of its peoples.

President Akufo-Addo made this known on Thursday, May 18, 2017, when he delivered his remarks at a State Dinner held in his honour by the President of Guinea, Prof. Alpha Conde, on day 2 of his 3-day tour of Guinea.
