The Ministry of information in collaboration with the Universal Merchant Bank (UMB) has launched this year’s National Policy Summit (NPS); a fair which enables civil society groups, businesses and government’s departments and agencies to interact and deliberate on policies.
The summit will also give opportunity to participants to make input during the implementation of national policies. The summit comes off on July, 23rd and 24th.
A Deputy Minister for information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, who launched the policy said, the it is not intended to engage only government officials but also seeks the engagement of other stakeholders, so as to build a tripartite relationship among stakeholders.
“we extend our invitations to other private sector players to come on board and share their opportunities with us,” he noted.
The deputy minister further indicated that the upcoming NPS to be held in the Ashanti region will deliberate on issues affecting the economy.
“it comes right on the back of the mid-year review of government’s economic policy,” he stated.
The summit will be on the theme: “Assessing the growth and jobs agenda”.
Oppong Nkrumah said the continued engagement with stakeholders will deepen democracy, as well as, strengthen the workforce of government throughout the country.
