Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia will lead an economic management team town hall meeting with stakeholders on the economy on April 3 in Accra.
Minister for Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah who disclosed this at a Press Briefing in Accra said the vice President who is also the head of the Economic Management Team will be speaking on the theme “our progress, our status, our future”.
He said the Town Hall Meetings are designed to bring government closer to the people and shall therefore see State actors give an account to the people who also have an opportunity to ask questions and make contributions to the local and national development process.
“The Meetings represent a major shift in Government’s policy to make information easily accessible and usable to the public here in and outside Ghana. This is guided by the Government’s desire to create a very inclusive and participatory society in ensuring that the citizenry here in Ghana and abroad are not only consumers of the development process but are creators and generators of the process” he said.
The Minister said the platform reflects government’s belief that, the lasting benefits of policies, plans and programs will only be derived through constant engagement with the beneficiaries far and near.
The much anticipated engagement will be attended by civil society groups, economic think tanks, trade unions and stakeholders in the financial sector.
