The Ghana Statistical Service has taken steps to assess the impact of the novel coronavirus on businesses in the country by embarking on a Business Tracker Survey.

The exercise which starts today and ends on June 20, 2020 is in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the World Bank.

The survey being conducted involves the use of telephone interviews for data collection, to identify and measure the impact of the viral outbreak on businesses in the country.

According to Government Statistician, Prof. Samuel Kobina Annim, the Business Tracker Survey would also assess measures put in place by businesses to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 as well as efforts to build better recovery for businesses.

The outcome of the survey would enable government and development partners to come out with measures to alleviate the impact of the pandemic on businesses.

Moreover, results from the survey would inform policy directions in protecting jobs and safeguarding the progress of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Prof. Annim further added that the findings will provide insights into keeping the promise of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCTA) alive as a tool to handle future pandemics and protect jobs/businesses.

He assured owners of establishments that information provided on businesses will not be disclosed to anyone in any form while the data collection does not require payment of money.
