Ghanaian entrepreneur finds success by growing and selling coconuts

Adowarim Lugu-zuri, CEO of Wazuri Ghana Limited, sees untapped opportunity in Ghana’s coconut industry.

For most young students being at university is the ideal time to enjoy your life, lounge around with friends, watch movies and socialise. Some would argue that this time in your life is the most appropriate for some self-indulgence. Not for Adowarim Lugu-zuri.

Ghana received welcome news last week from the IMF: real GDP growth for the country is projected to reach5.9 percent in 2017 and 8.9 percent in 2018, following three successive years when the increase was four percent or less. This is but one of several indicators of economic recovery, according to Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, the Minister of Trade & Industry.

He says, in this interview, that growth is essential for stability – but it must be “inclusive” and “bring everybody along”.

Kyerematen, who competed against Akufo-Addo for the nomination of the New Patriotic Party, is an economist and lawyer who served previously as trade minister and as Ghana’s ambassador in Washington, DC. In 2013, he was Africa’s consensus candidate for the position of Director General of the World Trade Organization.
