Regarding access to credit, Dr. Bawumia highlighted efforts to integrate databases for a credit scoring system by June. He proposed a new port tax system and a gold purchase program to strengthen the currency. He pledged to make Ghana a business-friendly economy, with plans for a simplified tax system and equalizing port duties to discourage smuggling.
