Creating Ghana’s worth
The importance of our industrial sector cannot be underestimated. 30% of our GDP comes from industry. Our work in this area is the result of clear and careful strategic planning, aimed at making intelligent and prudent use of the resources available.
We are proud that we have been able to reduce our sugar imports and create 7300 jobs through the building of a sugar factory. The Kumasi shoe factory project has resulted in 200 jobs, while the Savannah cement factory has created employment for 2000 people.
Other projects such as Elmina fish processing factory and the business processing outsourcing centre have resulted in the creation of over 12 000 jobs.
It is clear that our efforts are yielding results. We are getting people to work, connecting our farmers, fishermen and manufacturers with their customers and increased markets and through this, creating a legacy of growth, development and prosperity.
Our work has just begun. Our vision for the years to come is to build a strong, self-sufficient economy, carrying the fruits of our people’s labour to all of Ghana and beyond.
Serving the people of Ghana
Good governance, transparency and the fight against corruption are fundamental to building a stable and prosperous nation. Citizens can draw confidence from Ghana’s impressive progress in this area – and our work continues.
The first step towards transforming our country into the Ghana we all aspire to involves embedding the principles of good governance, transparency and accountability more deeply into our national culture while continuing our fight against corruption.
Under our leadership, Ghana has performed impressively in global rankings measuring the most important governance indicators − human rights, transparency and rule of law. What’s more, we have a vibrant civil society and active media that act as the nation’s eyes and ears in a free and open environment.
Disability and Accessibility
Society should be accessible to all
All people, regardless of functional variation or ability, should have equal rights and opportunities.
Accessibility and participation are human rights.
The environment party wants
No person should have to end up in a situation where you do not know what life or everyday life will look like in the future. The Environmental Party has long been pushing for LSS legislation to be clarified so that people receive the support they need and are entitled to, which was the purpose of LSS from the beginning.
A more accessible Sweden
All individuals are different and society should not just be designed for those who are the norm. The environmental party, together with Sweden's total disability movement, has been a driving force in that inaccessibility is now classified as discrimination in Sweden. And we continue to be a driving force in our efforts to make Sweden accessible in practice.
Better financial support
The environmental party wants to improve the situation for those with disabilities who have been struggling financially. Anyone who does not have the ability to work should still receive financial support that can be lived on.
Better availability in the labor market
Everyone deserves to participate fully in society, so jobs are an important part. We want to increase efforts so that more people with disabilities can get a job and that more people can work based on their own ability.
We also want to improve the conditions for social enterprises. It will be easier and faster to get the tools needed for the work. Employers should be able to be sure that they can receive good support if needed.
Equality right in the EU
The Environment Party is working to bring the anti-discrimination directive that was previously halted finally into place in the EU and to strengthen the accessibility directive. We also want:
The environmental party rules
In government, we have made several efforts in 2014-2018 for everyone's right to participate fully in society:
In a new government, we are now working for equal opportunities for all. For example, breathing and probe feeding should clearly represent a basic need for personal assistance.
