The maiden edition of the Ghana Results Fair 2020, aimed to showcase the works done by government over the past three years, has ended in Accra.
The three-day fair was held from January 14 -16 on the theme: “Delivering Results for Our Citizens: A Work in Progress.”
It was organised by the Ministry of Monitoring and Evaluation in partnership with the Public Sector Reforms for Results Project (PSRRP) and the World Bank.
Mr Kwabena Agyei Boakye, Acting Chief Director of the Ministry of Monitoring and Evaluation, in his closing remarks, called on citizens to play their respective roles to ensure that the government realised its objectives to provide nationwide growth.
He said the ministry would engage the relevant stakeholders to evaluate the Fair, after which it would be replicated in all the other regions and further down to the various districts.
The Chief Director said the ministry’s agenda for the year would focus more on evaluation since the previous year was dedicated to monitoring of projects.
Mr Boakye assured participants that they would further expand their space for more engagements with stakeholders to bolster their ability to carry out their mandate effectively.
He assured state institutions that the ministry was not in to take over their jobs, but rather to provide them with the needed technical support to enhance their operations.
He disclosed that the ministry had plans to organise a “Ghana Evaluation Week” this year, which is held across the globe in partnership with UNICEF.
Mr Boakye commended the partners who supported the Results Fair and called on them to continue to render their support anytime the ministry called on them.
