The Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has said he will consider the possibility of splitting the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning.
According to him, the move will ensure the effective planning of the economy of Ghana.
Critical minds of Ghana’s economy have argued that the Ministry of Finance and Economy Planning could be more effective particularly in its planning role when separated.
Amissah-Arthur admitted during his vetting with the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Monday that there are not enough planners at the Finance Ministry to execute the planning aspect of the economy.
“Currently, we have a Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning which really I don’t believe does any planning function so it’s something that we will look at,” he said.
According to him, there have been some discussions on how to make the planning department of the Ministry effective hence he will ensure it is put to use.
