Ghana's Media Long term plan needed to address media challenges - NMC

“I think the media industry is probably the best cautionary tale of why we need long-term planning. As a result of the lack of adequate planning, the media industry is always playing catch-up in infrastructure and growth,’’ Chairman of the National Media Commission, Kwasi Gyan-Apenteng has said.

The Chairman of the National Media Commission, Kwasi Gyan-Apenteng has indicated that happenings in Ghana's media industry with regards to changing trends make it necessary to have a long term plan.

“I think the media industry is probably the best cautionary tale of why we need long-term planning. As a result of the lack of adequate planning, the media industry is always playing catch-up in infrastructure and growth,’’ he made this known when the when the Director General of the National Development Planning Commission NDPC, Dr Nii Moi Thompson and some officials of the Commission briefed members of the NMC on progress of work on the 40-Year National Development Plan.

The 40-year long-term development plan, which will be put before Parliament by the end of this year, is expected to be implemented between 2018 and 2057.

It will be incorporated in the country’s Constitution and, therefore, will be binding on all governments.

The Director-General of the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC), Dr Nii Moi Thompson, noted that development projects must not be curtailed because of a change in government, adding that “Very few projects can be started by one government and completed within four years.’’

“I hope we will grow out of our current political discourse, because when a government decides to carry out the programmes of the previous government, we hear all sorts of comments that they are copying other political parties’ policies. Governments are, therefore, sometimes reluctant to carry on what they inherited,” he added.
