The Ministry of Finance has launched the 2018 version of the Citizen’s Budget to help citizens understand government initiatives and policies stated in the budget.
The document has been presented in a simplified language to make sure that every Ghanaian understood the key public finance information and initiatives government intended to rollout.
The 2018 budget statement is on the theme: “Putting Ghana Back to Work” and Citizen’s budget development was supported by the German Government (GIZ).
Mr Ken Ofori Atta, the Minister of Finance, in a speech read on his behalf, said the objective of the launch was to promote the understanding of the budget process and to crave active participation in the process of development.
He said government had kept faith with Ghanaians and had achieved a number of things they promised such as restoring and sustaining the macro economic growth, implementation of the free SHS policy, restoring teacher and nurses training allowance among others.
Mr Ofori Atta said after achieving all these, the government was of the view that the year 2018 held a lot of prospects for every Ghanaian, hence the theme.
In 2018, we will continue to implement the policy initiatives we began in the 2017 budget.
