Rapport de l'ONU trouve des millions de Ghanéens ne bénéficient pas de l'économie en plein essor

Un rapport des Nations Unies en trouve des millions de personnes au Ghana, ne bénéficient pas des pays en plein essor économique, mais restent englués dans la pauvreté. L'U. N. Rapporteur Spécial sur l'extrême pauvreté et droits de l'homme a présenté les résultats de ses 10 jours de mission d'établissement des faits au Ghana en avril à l'U. N. Conseil des Droits Humains.

U.N. Investigator Philip Alston says Ghana is the fastest growing economy in Africa and one of the three fastest growing economies in the whole world. He says this success is making the rich richer, while a high proportion of the population continues to live in poverty.
He says the poor are losing out amidst the country’s growing wealth because Ghana spends 50 percent less than its peer countries in Africa on social protection.
So, the risk is that Ghana continues to be the great economic success story in the continent, but that very little of the wealth will trickle down to a fairly extensive number of Ghanaians, who continue to live in poverty.
Ghana’s main economic initiatives will do little to reduce poverty, warns UN expert

GENEVA (20 June 2018) – Ghana’s flagship policies might well stimulate the country’s economy but they won’t do much to get rid of... https://www.facebook.com/562817348/posts/10156239819432349/ 
According to him says most of the country’s resources are being plowed into private investment projects designed to make the wealthy better off. He says this policy comes at the expense of providing better employment opportunities and welfare benefits for the poor.
“So, the risk is that Ghana continues to be the great economic success story in the continent, but that very little of the wealth will trickle down to a fairly extensive number of Ghanaians, who continue to live in poverty,” said Alston.
Statistics show one in five Ghanaians live in poverty and one in eight live in extreme poverty. Alston says he finds it particularly troubling that 28 percent of children live in poverty.
He said Ghana has a very big problem of corruption and the failure of the government to collect taxes strips the country of important revenue.
“That means that they do not have revenue for additional spending.So, they need to crack down seriously on corruption and on tax evasion and some of the resulting money, even a small part of it needs to be actually spent on these social protection programs,” said Alston.
En réponse, le Ghana notes de l'inégalité affecte souvent rapidement les économies en expansion comme son propre. Mais, il dit que le gouvernement s'est engagé à réduire la pauvreté et à la réalisation de l'U. N. Objectif de Développement Durable de l'éradication de la pauvreté d'ici à 2030.
