The Ministry of Finance notes with concern the assertion by Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia at a distinguished speaker series lecture delivered on 24th March 2015 that Ghana has been sanctioned by the African Development Bank.
On page 19 of the Statement, he asserts that Ghana has been sanctioned by the African Development Bank for the non-payment of debt obligations due. He further stated that “Ghana regrettably joins the list of nations currently under AfDB sanctions”.
This is factually incorrect, and Dr. Bawumia should have checked ALL the facts.
The Government of Ghana, UNDP and the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) are jointly hosting a Regional Workshop on data usage from 19th - 20th March 2015 at the M-Plaza Hotel in Accra.
The workshop brings together a range of actors and stakeholders in development cooperation to discuss ways to exploit the wealth of available data to meet financial and budgetary planning needs at national and sub-national levels, and to challenge those providing information to do so with greater emphasis on the quality needs of the end user.
