The Deputy Minister of Finance, Ms Mona
Quartey says transparency alone cannot
guarantee sound management of the
extractive resources of the country. She’s called for the strengthening of the link
between transparency, accountability and the
overall development of the country. She urged parliament to do more in monitoring
the collection and the use of the revenue from
the industry by passing the right laws and
ensuring that all agreements approved were
mutually beneficial to the country and the
investors. Ms Quartey was speaking at the opening of
the Ghana Extractive Industries Transparency
Initiative Dissemination Workshop for
Parliamentarians in Koforidua. Dr Steve Manteaw of ISODEC, who was also
present at the workshop called for determined
efforts to manage public expectation of
Ghana’s oil revenue. Source: kasapafmonline.com28014895
