The Minster of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, will on Sunday (31 October) host a live audio conversation on Twitter Spaces with young entrepreneurs to take feedback and inputs from them that will inform government policy directions as it prepares to present the 2022 Budget Statement.
Dubbed “#ListenUp”, the Spaces is the first of its kind and will feature a host of young entrepreneurs coming together in a virtual space to deliberate around entrepreneurship, its prospects and how to resolve bottlenecks in business creation.
This follows an ongoing national conversation triggered by comments passed by the Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta during a recent graduation ceremony at the UPSA that government’s payroll is full.
Oppong Nkrumah who is himself an avid Twitter user will through his handle (@konkrumah) join young entrepreneurs to take inputs from them that will feed into government policy decisions for the future.
#ListenUp is organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Information and is expected to be an occasional platform for deepening engagement particularly feedback from the Ghanaian people.
Ofori-Atta is expected to present the Budget Statement and Economic Policy of the government for the 2022 financial year to Parliament on 17 November.
The Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, made this known in Parliament on Tuesday (26 October).
