In an event jointly sponsored by the Milken Institute and the Center for Global Development, Ken Ofori-Atta will talk about the Ghanaian experience in trying to move beyond aid and the lessons for other African countries and their development partners. Having recently managed a successful exit from IMF support for the government’s economic program, he will give his vision as to how governments can bring about economic transformation that generates growth and jobs and reduces poverty.
In addition to being Minister for Finance of Ghana, Mr. Ofori-Atta is also the Chairman of the World Bank Development Committee for the next two years and the head of the African Caucus. These rarely combined roles give him a unique vantage point to envisage a new future for Ghana and Africa.
