The Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai District Assembly has organized an emergency Assembly Meeting on Budget statement & economic policy for the 2018 fiscal year. Since the creation of the assembly, it has worked tirelessly to lay a solid foundation for the smooth running of the Assembly. As part of the efforts therefore, a budget was laid before the erstwhile Assembly in November, 2016 for the implementation of various developmental projects in line with our vision of improving the standard of living of our people through the provision of socio-economic services and facilities in partnership with stakeholders.
There is therefore the need to take stock of previous year’s activities and identify ways of developing the district through a regular update of existing data upon which we would from time to time make projections.
