This move is expected to empower importers, allowing for better planning and ensuring stable prices for commodities.
The Association acknowledges that such a measure will not only boost the spare parts dealership sector but will also bring relief to its members. The stability introduced through fixed import duties is seen as a catalyst for fostering growth and sustainability in the industry.
While endorsing Mr. Kyerematen’s proposal, the Association wishes him success in his electoral aspirations.
The leadership urges its members to remain calm as they carefully evaluate and consider all proposals presented by presidential aspirants in the ongoing race.
In closing, the Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association reiterates its commitment to engaging constructively with political candidates and policymakers for the betterment of its members and the overall growth of the economy.
