Ghana’s economic performance criticised by partners | General News 2013-03-07


Ghana’s development partners are unhappy with the state of the country’s economy and have voiced out their frustrations in a meeting with President John Mahama.

In a rare case of pointing out the flaws of a sitting government, Ghana’s development partners led by head of mission Claude Martew minced no words in describing Ghana’s economic performance as poor and far below expectation.

In a meeting with President John Mahama at the Flagstaff House in Accra on Thursday Martew expressed disappointment with the country’s fiscal performance last year.

He said the practice in which the economic gains of the country are eroded after election is unhealthy and called for a quick resolution of the problem.

He also had grave concerns with Ghana’s poor public service as well corruption.

Martew also applauded government for increasing fuel prices but said a lot more needs to be done to ensure macro-economic stability at all times.
