According to him, with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s new vision of building Ghana Beyond Aid, it was very necessary for the business community to modernize or change their mindsets, attitudes towards clients, and how they handle their businesses in general to meet the modern trends. The Deputy Minister said, government is on course in digitizing Ghana which he indicated was evidenced in the cases of the National Identification and Addressing System, the Drivers’ License and Vehicle Registration, the Paperless Operations System at the Ports and Interoperability of payment system in the financial sector among others. "It is our resolve as government to continue creating the enabling environment for businesses to flourish as it will certainly not only increase government revenue and create job opportunities, but also put us on a sound footing for the Ghana beyond aid agenda to be executed"; Mr. Ayertey stressed. He also said, government is committed to the National Anti-Corruption interventions which are being championed by the Commission on Human Right and Administrative Justice (CHRAG). Currently, the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) are being accessed on transparency and effective citizens' engagement. The MMDAs have been trained to also report all the anti-corruption interventions they (Assemblies) have undertaken to enable easy tracking of their work progress. Meanwhile, the business forum attracted various stakeholders from different organizations such as AGI, NBSSI, PEF and EOCO among others.
