Ghana’s President John Mahama on Tuesday told world leaders in New York that his country is working to keep the progress towards attaining the Millennium Development Goals (MGGs) on course.
Ghana, he said, would not be complacent in its efforts, especially as challenges such as regional and socio-economic disparities still remained.
A official statement said he was speaking in New York at an UNDP/World Bank organized side event on, “MDGs: Tackling the unfinished business and accelerating progress.”
Other heads of state and governments at the event were from Tanzania, Bangladesh, Costa Rica and the Kingdom of Tonga.
President Mahama said Ghana had made significant achievements in reducing extreme poverty by half ahead of 2015 under the MDG 1, while it was on course to achieving MDGs 2 on Education, MDG 3 on Gender Equality, and HIV
