“Our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is expected to grow by 2.7 per cent this year. Our external reserve has risen to 45 billion dollars enough to finance over nine months of current equal commitments. This administration has laid a foundation of taking bold steps in transforming our country and delivering our people from shackles of poverty.

“First we will take steps in integrating the rural economy to national economic grade by extending access to input to rural farmers as well as credit to rural micro businesses and opening up many critical feeder roads.

“Secondly, all small scale enterprises in towns and cities would share facilities currently available so that we can continue to encourage and support domestic production of basic goods to improve our lives,’’ he said.
