Discussions that took place during the recent visit of the World Bank Vice President for Africa, Dr Hafez Ghanem, to Ghana, depict that the Bretton Woods institution believes in the Ghana Beyond Aid agenda of the Akufo-Addo administration, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has told parliament on Thursday, 28 March 2019.

Dr Ghanem visited Ghana on the 24th of March 2019.

When he paid a courtesy call on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House in Accra, Dr Ghanem said the government’s ability to implement the free senior high school policy was indicative of its determination to move the country on the path of prosperity.

Dr Ghanem told President Akufo-Addo that: “We are very supportive of your decision to make all education up to secondary school free; I think this is extremely important and we would like to help as much as possible.”

In his address to parliament, Mr Ofori-Atta said: “Our recent success in the Eurobond demonstrates the clear confidence that the international community has in the hard work that we have done. We know that this confidence resonates with our vision of Ghana Beyond Aid.

“The World Bank’s Vice-President for the African Region visited Ghana between the 24th and 26th of March 2019. The objective of the visit was to discuss with the government and other stakeholders the World Bank’s assisted projects for Ghana and explore areas for future collaboration.

“The discussions centred on efforts to mobilise funds for economic transformation towards the achievements of the Ghana beyond aid and all the SDGs.”
