The exercise is obligated by law under the Public Financial Management Regulations,2019, backed by Legislative Instrument 2378, hence the mandatory conduct of the meeting.
Essentially, the hearings are aimed at harmonizing and crystallising the various budgets of the constituent Municipals and Districts for onward submission to the Finance Ministry, to be incorporated into the National budget, so as to enable the Region to enjoy a fair share of the national cake for its developmental agenda. All the six constituent Municipal and District Assemblies took turns to do a PowerPoint Presentation of their budgets.
The constituent Attendee Municipal and District Assemblies were East and West Mamprusi Municipals, Bunkpurugu/Nakpanduri, Chereponi, Mamprugu Moagduri and Yunyoo-Nasuan Districts Assemblies.
Diligently facilitating the exercise was a National Budget team from Accra.
