“Opening up the country allows the economy to continue to recover, which has a positive impact on food, service, transport and tourism businesses. The banking and financial sectors also benefited from rising interest rates. However, the acceleration in adapting to the business revival has increased production and administrative costs at a faster rate than sales. Partly due to the volatility of raw material and commodity prices, resulting in lower profits for listed companies.” Mr Manpong said
