Businesses upbeat about growth in capital markets

Business operators are confident this year’s budget which has since been approved by Parliament, will strengthen the country’s capital markets.

According to them, the budget offers progressive stimulus to the investing public.

Government in its first budget presentation slashed and reduced various taxes for various business operators.

In an interview with Citi Business News, Chief Executive Officer of Veritas Equities, Theophilus Tawiah said he is optimistic the measures put in place by the new government will go a long way to reinforce investor confidence as well as pave way for opportunities in the business world.

“If you look at the capital market for example, there are measures given by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta which will strengthen the capital market. The tax cut will also stimulate the public such that there will be money available. This is because we have disposable income now to make investments; so we encourage Ghanaians to use the cuts in their income to make savings,” he said.
