As part of its broad plan of consultations with stakeholders, in the process of developing a new Compact for Ghana, the Compact 2 Core Team met with stakeholders selected from 3 regions Central, Greater Accra and Volta at Koforidua on June 26, 2012. The theme for the consultation was “Powering Ghana for sustainable and accelerated development”. The regions were represented by 125 participants including market women associations, the media, the disabled, public service, political parties and traditional authorities attended this consultation.
