Posted on: 03-Oct-2013        
The Ministry of Finance in collaboration with Development Partners held the 2012 Multi-Donor Budget Support annual review to take a closer look at the progress made in Ghana’s medium term development agenda.

The review looked at all the development issues facing the country including health, energy, education, agriculture, water and sanitation, transport and social protection.

Mr Seth Terkper, Minister of Finance, who spoke at the opening of the day’s joint review workshop in Accra on Wednesday, commended the contribution of the partners to the development of the country.

He appealed for more donor support in other sectors of the economy to facilitate national development.

The review also mapped out development priorities for assessment next year.

As part of the workshop, participants reviewed good governance, sound macro-economic policies and management, sound budgeting and public financial management systems among other topics.

Mr Yusupha Crookes, World Bank Country Director said although the country has many opportunities there are few challenges which need to be addressed.
