- China settled to import US goods and services
The trade of US goods and services is reducing the imbalance between China and US as well as diminishing fears of a looming trade war.
Washington said that the move will considerably decrease its $335bn annual trade deficit with Beijing. However, it will be too early to tell exactly how big the reduction would be.
A US-China statement said following days of talks in Washington:
“Both sides agreed on meaningful increases in US agriculture and energy exports”.
“This will help support growth and employment in the United States.”
The countries also settled to keep negotiating on trade to resolve their concerns in an active manner.
Earlier, the White House had also said it was aiming for a $200bn reduction. But this figure didn’t mention in the statement.
Both sides also did not confirm whether they would delay or drop their tariff threats on billions of dollars’ worth of each other’s goods.
Both countries have imposed tariffs on each other’s’ imports.
Why they imposed?
US President Donald Trump threatened to impose tariffs on up to $150bn on Chinese goods to persuade China to end the theft of American intellectual property for example technology and copyright.
The US has already levied tariffs on imports of steel and aluminium while Beijing also threatened equal retaliation. It includes tariffs on a number of US imports among them aircraft, wine, soybeans, cars, pork, fruit and nuts.
- Mobile Money Interoperability: I buy GhIPSS argument
Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper has charged parties locked up in the Mobile Money interoperability contracts to release the necessary documents for citizens to appreciate.
Abdul Malik Kweku Baako said although he supports the argument of engaging a local company to do the job, it would be unfair to conclude without having the benefit of all the facts.
Mr Baako told the host of News analysis show, Newsfile, Samson Lardy Anyenini on Joy FM/JoyNews TV, Saturday, “If we have a local entity we can empower to undertake this project, that’s a preferable option. I am persuaded by that argument,”.
He added that the entire conversation will be presumptuous if the commentators do not have all information on the contracts.
He cited a letter from pressure group OccupyGhana which demanded documents from the contract between Sibton Switch Systems and the Bank of Ghana (BoG) and that of Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems Limited (GhIPSS).
Government terminated a contract between BoG and foreign-based company Sibton to provide mobile money interoperability for Ghana. The company was to be paid GH¢4.5 billion over 25 years.

- Mining Atewa forest will make Ghana worse off
Daryl Bosu, the Executive Director of Aroucha Ghana, a group against mining in the Atewa forest, has maintained that the group will continue to oppose any move by government of Ghana to mine bauxite in the Atewa forest in the Eastern region.
He said, mining in the Atewa forest will destroy water bodies in the area that serve as a source of drinking water for millions of people.
Daryl Bosu stated,“Our concern has been the target or the focal areas for which the government wants to exploit this bauxite. We are saying that the government should completely exclude the Atewa forest because of its water producing services from the deal with the Chinese”.
Government in the 2017 Budget statement revealed its intentions to develop an integrated Aluminum industry and also mine bauxite deposits within the Atewa forest reserve and two other areas in Ghana.
To this extent, Ghana is in talks to secure a 15 billion dollar loan from the China Development Bank.
But environmentalists and some observers argue that the country will pay a huge price with the proposed 15 billion dollar Ghana-China joint venture should government go ahead with its plans.
- Experts predict 3% fuel price rise
According to the Institute of Energy Security (IES) experts prediction, fuel prices will rise 3% in May’s second pricing window.
Reports of the increase come after three consecutive pricing windows where rates remained steady.
The slight surge could stem from a 1.33 percent depreciation of the Ghana cedi against the U.S. dollar, the IES report revealed.
The report said, recent U.S. sanctions against Iran is a factor in increases as well, .
Duncan Amoah, Executive Secretary of Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) said on Monday that “a fully functional national refinery would have served a good catalyst to manage such price increases.”
Meanwhile, IES revealed that Zen Petroleum remains the frontrunner in the market with the cheapest fuel followed by Benab Oil, Pacific, Lucky Oil and Frimps Oil.
Internationally, Brent crude prices continue to soar from $73.01 per barrel to $75.12 per barrel at close trading.
The report stated, the increases in Brent Crude prices, as well as finished products and the depreciation of the Cedi do not present positive news for the petroleum consumer,” .
Standard and Poor’s Global Platts benchmark showed that gasoline rose 2.55 percent at $712.68 per metric tonne.
