Cheryl Anderson, outgoing Country Director, United state Agency for International Development (USAID) Ghana, has urged Ghana to focus on becoming aid independent and a major supplier of goods and services to countries in the sub-region.

Ms Anderson, who made this known during an encounter with the media in Accra said, “I am very optimistic Ghana will achieve a major economic transformation and become supplier of goods and services to the sub-region.”

She said Ghana’s economic progress over the last 20 years has been laudable.

Economic growth averages more than six percent each year over the past decade and is expected to continue growing at a rapid pace in the coming years, she indicated.
