The Daily Graphic says the reopening of the Obuasi Mine is good for the economy. This is because an estimated two thousand five hundred jobs will be created to reduce the unemployment levels in the country to spur economic development. It says the Mine will bring Obuasi back to its old vibrancy to make life there better, and most importantly soar the country’s reputation as an attractive destination for global mining industry players. It believes that state-provided support is crucial because at the time mining companies are warning of dwindling new investments in redevelopment and expansion, the Obuasi Mine should prove critical in rekindling investor confidence and enthusiasm.
The Ghanaian Times agrees with farmers who say they will not sell cashew if buyers are not willing to meet their prices. The farmers resolved to sell a tonne of the fruit at nothing less than 800 cedis and, the buyers on the other hand insist on the price of the same quantity at 700 cedis. The paper says it is regrettable that the cashew nut sector is not regulated as it is with other cash crops. The sector it notes has the potential of becoming a revenue earner for the country and therefore ought to be regulated as is done to cocoa. The Times is of the opinion that it cannot allow the sector to operate in a manner that the farmers would always be disadvantaged all the time and calls on government to step in to regulate the sector to protect the farmers. The Times asks that the condition and infrastructure to support the country processing and value-added are created as part of expansion of the cashew sector.
