Presedent E. J. A. Mills President, John Evans Atta Mills announced to the Forum of Heads of State and Government of the Implementing Committee (HSGIC) at the just ended 14th Summit of the African Peer Review (APR Forum) that Ghana was ready for a second review. He said this at the APRM meeting held at the margins of the Sixteenth Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Saturday, January 29, 2011.

The Forum reviewed the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia as the fourteenth country to complete the review process. Ethiopia’s Country Review Report commended the country for being one of the fastest-growing non-oil economies in the world. It also indicated that though Ethiopia does not have a stock exchange, it has a Commodity Exchange in line with the Arusha Declaration and Plan of Action on African Commodities of 2005.

The report also praised Ethiopia’s pro-poor spending pattern which ensures that over 90 percent of the Government’s capital budget is allocated to enhancing pro-poor growth and social sectors such as agriculture, rural development and food security, roads, irrigation, water supply and sanitation, education, health and HIV/AIDS.
