Aviation Ministry ends two day mid-year review

The Ministry of Aviation has ended a two day conference of a mid-year budget review in the Greater Accra region to assess their performance against their targeted plan for the year 2019.

According to the sector Minister Joseph Kofi Adda the review will help the Ministry on its set out target for the beginning of the year to enable it measure how far it had gone in, implementation of its policy on programmes and projects. 

He further explained that it would also provide a platform for the Ministry to take corrective actions in areas where they seem to be lagging in the implementation of policies and strategies in other to achieve its set goals for the sector in the year. 

Mr. Kofi Adda pointed out in his remarks that the gathering will also provide an opportunity to take stock of their collective efforts to make the Aviation industry better and to serve as one of the key drivers for the socio-economic development of the country. 

Again with the choice of Ghana hosting the secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA) would provide a golden opportunity for the sector to leverage the advantages of (AFCCTA) to promote an aviation hub agenda.

“It might interest you to know that the international passenger traffic at terminal three (3) at the Kotoka International Airport per day averages around nine thousand, which indicates that the sector is growing and demand for air travel is also growing with it”.  

In an interview, the Deputy Aviation Minister Yaw Afful revealed that the sector met in March to set target for the year, hence the need for the conference to assess themselves whether they are on course and if not, what can be done to reach the set target for the year.
