ACCRA , Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Ghanaian president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Monday said his government was strategizing to increase export volumes under the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) from 29 million U.S. dollars in 2016 to 500 million dollars by 2020.
He said the government was working to institute measures to ensure the country took full advantage of the US market through the AGOA initiative.
""We aim at increasing our export volumes under AGOA to 500 million dollars in 2020, which will create in its wake hundreds of thousands of jobs. The target is ambitious, but certainly achievable,"" he said , while launching the expansion project of Dignity Do-The-Right-Thing (DTRT) Apparel in Accra.
Dignity DTRT is a Ghanaian-American joint venture initiative currently employing some 1,600 people, and is set to export 30 million dollars worth of clothing to the US by 2018.
The AGOA is a preferential market access system given to specific countries in Africa and the Caribbean by the United States.
Under the trade agreement, most of Sub Saharan African countries are allowed to export over 6 ,000 products duty-free to the U.S. market.
Akufo-Addo described the apparel project as being consistent with his government's vision to make Ghana an industrial hub in West Africa and drive its socio-economic development.

" Going on a vacation with your family? Traveling into a place that you are not familiar with to spend the holidays? Then you have to make sure that you have to come out of your shell and put on your adventure cap. When traveling for a vacation your intention is to enjoy and have a good time, unfortunately , there are times when you do not enjoy your vacation because of doing the same old thing whenever you go on such vacation. Doing the same routines like staying at your hotel room and taking pictures at different scenic spots can get real old.
So how can you turn around an otherwise boring vacation? Well start shedding your boring vacation techniques and put on your sense for adventure. First thing that you have to do is to get out of your hotel room and explore the sights, you did not travel all the way there to appreciate your hotel room. Once you are out ask guidance from the hotel receptionist on the best spots that you can go to, or better yet why not grab a map and find the spots yourself. The latter is preferred than the former because of the fact that losing your way in an unfamiliar place is part of the adventure, just remember to ask for directions when you completely lost your way and your map is no help at all.
Once you find your way explore the different sites not just by taking photos and appreciating its scenic view , you have to, this time, find a way to explore the sights up close and personal. For example, if you want to appreciate the river and its white water then you have to try white water rafting , many vacation spots offer this kind of extreme sport for a reasonable price so what?s there to stop you from trying it out? Or maybe you would like to enjoy the scenic route of a hiking trail, then maybe there is a certain area that offers more than a hiking trail by offering adventure activities. Maybe you can explore the forest from above using a zip line, this is a fun activity that gives you a feeling of adventure while taking great photos from above for your souvenir.
Or maybe you would like to bring out your family?s competitive spirit, instead of staying at your hotel room and play board games why not go out and play competitive games like paintball? Paintball is a fun multiplayer game that allows you compete with one another or play together as a team , this is also a fun way of enjoying the scenery or the sights in a competitive and fun way. After all the exploring and fun before you head back to your hotel it would complete your vacation if you try and relax by looking for a perfect spot to watch the sunset, ending your day with a relaxing scenery will always keep you energized and ready for the next adventure the following morning.
