The six-day fair on the theme: “Building Together in a Better Ghana” is expected to be opened by Vice President John Dramani Mahama.
Mr Baffour said all Ministries, Departments and Agencies as well as Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies in Greater Accra Region would be brought together under one roof to provide a one-stop access to the general public.
He explained that “This would provide an avenue for people to interact freely with Ministers of State, Chief Executive Officers of public institutions as well as Chief Directors, Directors and other senior members of these institutions, to offer suggestions, seek information, clarify policy issues and better understand policy and projects initiatives”.
Mr Baffour said in addition, the fair would provide the platform for private sector to explore opportunities for possible collaboration that would rake in the much needed resources as well as create employment avenues for the Ghanaian youth.
He explained that the fair concept instituted in 2010, had become one of the surest avenue through which Government provided Ghanaians with inalienable access to information, regarding the discharge of its responsibilities to the people.
Mr Baffour said this year, the fair dialogue series would witness innovative sessions and interesting topics, which would be handled by some illustrious Ghanaians.
