General information for Tuesday 23 November 2021
Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia urged heads of state agencies to embrace more efficient use of public resources to maximize the value of what has been entrusted to them.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of a retreat for board chairs, heads and deputy heads of government institutions in Nkwatia-Kwahu, Dr Bawumia told participants that state agencies have a crucial role to play if Ghana’s quest for less dependence on foreign aid is to be achieved, hence the need for them to adopt innovative ways to transform their agencies for the benefit of all Ghanaians.
Highlighting the important roles the public sector, in particular, should play in bringing Ghana closer to the vision of Ghana Beyond Aid, Vice President Bawumia urged heads of institutions to “harness and use the country’s own resources to transform economically and efficiently for a rapid but sustainable growth trajectory ”.
The Vice President implored heads of state institutions to strengthen the technological capacities of their organizations in line with the government’s digitization agenda, strengthen their operations for the benefit of Ghanaians and effectively contribute to Ghana’s economic transformation.
Heads of institutions and agencies were trained on how to sell Ghana to attract more investment.
