An economist and research fellow with the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), Dr. Adu Owusu Sarkodie is admonishing government to focus more on domestic revenue mobilisation as it prepares to present the 2019 Budget Statement and Fiscal Policy to Ghanaians on 13th November 2019.
According to him, revenue generation is one of the most important aspects of economic growth, thus government must create more avenues and also manage the existing ones properly.
“I will support any measure that is, first of all, to help mobilise domestic resource and also to manage it because it is one thing getting the revenue and it is another thing managing it. The leakages in the system that we have been talking about are due to the lack of this. So, this is what I want to see, the effort and the energy by the Ministry of Finance and the Central Government, in general, to focus on domestic resource mobilisation,” he said.
