Gov’t to organize first economic national forum in June

President John Mahama has announced that in June this year, government will organize a national forum on the economy.

A post on his Facebook page revealed that the decision was arrived at after discussions with the Economic Management Team where it was concluded that “our country will benefit from a National Forum on the Economy. So we have agreed to organize the first one in June.”

He said his government is convinced that “the passion involved in the present bipartisan debate leads to inefficiency.”

The President added that “economic difficulties can be better tackled through brainstorming, by gathering all the stakeholders (political parties, civil society, private sector, labour and government) around the same table.”

His duty as a President according to his “is to aim social peace and to find national consensus for the main issues.
