The Member of Parliament for Subin, Hon. Isaac Osei has criticized the government for not doing much to ensure the growth of the industrial sector.

According to him the government has failed to put in place pragmatic measures and incentives such as low cost of borrowing and low lending rates that would ensure the growth of the sector.

The MP, who was contributing to the debate on the Presidents State of the Nations Address, stated that the instability in power supply impacts negatively on industries especially the manufacturing sector as most of their equipment end up getting damaged.

He noted that one thing that strengthens industries is a stable business environment which at the moment is absent.

Touching on health, Hon. Isaac Osei lashed out at the government and the President for deliberately not saying anything about the one time payment under the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) as the government has promised.

“The actuary study on the policy is over and we were expecting the president to tell us something substantial about the scheme,” he said.
