Buhari unveils FG’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan today, Wednesday
All is set for the official launching of the Federal Government’s survival strategy roadmap, the
Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) 2017-2020 by President Muhammadu Buhari today, Wednesday at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, at 11am.
The plan, according to the architects will herald a new push for economic recovery and the building of a competitive global economy by the federal government.
The presidency in a late press release signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, Femi Adesina, said the launch of the ERGP is “in furtherance of the current Administration’s drive to sustain and build on the successes so far recorded in tackling corruption, improving security and revamping the economy.”
He said the Medium-Term ERGP, which had earlier been approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC), has amongst its broad strategic objectives: restoring sustainable, accelerated inclusive growth and development; investing in the people; and building a globally competitive economy.
The private sector is expected to drive the new recovery plan as government deepens formulation of workable policies.
