The Minister for Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Hon. Daniel Botwe has said that poverty can be alleviated when well-structured laid down policies of the government are enforced focusing on decentralisation.
He noted that the vision of the Ministry as a policy-formulating entity is to attain good governance and equitable and balanced development at the local level through its policies.
Hon. Daniel Botwe made the above observation at an international conference on the theme, "Piloting China's Targeted Poverty Alleviation Model in West Africa under Chinese Pace to Modernisation."
He noted that the government needs to ensure policies geared towards poverty alleviation are enforced and adequately supervised.
1. E. Lu Kun, China's Ambassador to Ghana, noted that his country has reduced poverty from 90 percent to one percent in recent years, noting that "China's poverty alleviation model is not one size fits all."
Mr. Kun said China is ready to support West Africa to alleviate poverty at the rural level.
