Government Retreat Discusses Way Forward For Economy



The government has held a four-day retreat at the Presidential Lodge in Peduase to discuss the economy, take stock of programmes and chart a path for growth.

The retreat, the second this year, which had almost all members of government present, started last Friday and discussed the various flagship programmes, how to communicate government programmes effectively and the reason for accessing International Monetary Fund (IMF) programmes.

The retreat, according to our sources, also reviewed the cost-cutting measures announced at the last Cabinet meeting in March this year and assessed their performance which, according to the figures, were yielding some dividends.

All members of government and appointees took part in the retreat. They included all ministers and deputies, metropolitan, municipal and district chief executives; chief executive officers appointed by the President and presidential staffers.

Unlike other retreats, the government functionaries parked their vehicles and joined buses to Peduase.

Other sources, who took part in the meeting, revealed that many of the issues discussed surprised participants, especially about the quantum of work being done on the ground.

“The meeting produced loads of information that will help members of government to communicate better with facts and figures,” one of the sources said.
