Ghana has no lack of good concepts and strategies, but faces challenges in implementation. Because of its close cooperation with the donor community, the government has pursued a pragmatic course regarding the delivery aspects of political planning.

An intermittent lack of fiscal discipline has shown that gains in efficiency are not irreversible. The government must manage all revenue in a way that pleases an increasingly politically aware electorate and meets the standards of proper financial administration, including the necessary transparency and avoidance of corruption.

The regional situation remains challenging, as events in neighboring countries, volatile forms of instability and the re-emergence of less democratic leaders pose a threat to Ghana’s stability and security.
