The National De­velopment Plan­ning Commission (NDPC) has launched a long-term national development framework, Vision 2057, aim at elevating the country to upper middle-income status by 2057.

The Director-General of the NDPC, Dr Kojo Esseim Mensah- Abrampa, during a presentation on the Vision 2057 Framework for Long-Term National Develop­ment, added that the framework focuses on various dimensions, in­cluding human settlement, housing development, democratic gover­nance, and human security.

He emphasised that the econom­ic dimension of the development plan aimed to build a prosperous, inclusive, and resilient economy, with a significant focus on TVET and Science, Technology, Engi­neering, and Mathematics (STEM) training to create an equitable and healthy society.

Professor George Gyan-Baffour, Chairman of the NDPC, speak­ing at an event in Accra yesterday to unveil the plan, highlighted its foundational elements and overar­ching objectives.

According to him, the plan builds on Ghana’s historical devel­opment trajectory, reflecting les­sons learned from past experiences and aligning with global com­mitments such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

He emphasised that the frame­work provided a roadmap for achieving integrated socio-eco­nomic development goals, setting a course for a prosperous and self-reliant nation.

Professor Gyan-Baffour explained that the Vision 2057 Long-Term National Development Perspective Framework, instead of being a rigid prescriptive plan, offers a flexible guiding document.

This approach, he said, allowed future governments the freedom to choose their projects and pro­grammes while adhering to the overarching national vision.

He highlighted that the Vision 2057 framework aimed to improve living standards and achieve mac­roeconomic stability, peace and se­curity, human capital development, and sustainable infrastructure in the country.

“The NDPC conducted ex­tensive consultations with stake­holders, including civil society organisations, academia, political parties, and international partners, to ensure broad support and input into the plan,” he added.

Touching on governance, Profes­sor Gyan-Baffour stressed the im­portance of continuity, stating that future governments should align their projects with the Vision 2057 goals and called for collaboration among all Ghanaians, urging them to contribute ideas and talents to shape the nation’s future.

In his remarks, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Association of Ghana Industries, Mr Seth Twum Akwaboa, described the un­veiling of the plan as timely, saying Ghana had in recent times suffered turbulent times.

The United Nations Resident Coordinator, Charles Abani, in a speech read on his behalf, said the implementation of the Vision 2057 hinged on all Ghanaians and com­mended the UNDP for drafting such a plan.
