Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, has emphasised government’s commitment to investing huge capital in the educational sector in 2019.
The move, according to him, goes to confirm government’s regard for human capital as an essential element of the country’s economy.
Presenting the 2019 budget in Parliament earlier today, the Finance Minister stated: “In line with our belief in investing in human capital, education is about to witness the largest capital expenditure in the sector for any single year in the last 50 years.
Government will continue to ensure that these investments lead to an increase in resources for the educational sector.”
He added that a part of a US$1.5 billion long-term financing for GETFUND will be used to establish critical educational infrastructure in secondary and tertiary institutions around the country.
