Growth and Transformation Plan II
"The major objective of GTP II is to serve as a spring board towards realizing the national vision of becoming a low middle-income country by 2025, through sustaining the rapid, broad based and inclusive economic growth, which accelerates economic transformation and the journey towards the country’s Renascence. Thus, GTP II is primarily considered to be an important milestone towards realizing the national vision. In this context, during the GTPII implementation period, effective public participation in a coordinated and structured manner at all levels is critical to ensuring equitable development and to build developmental political economy. As such, GTP II will focus on ensuring rapid, sustainable & broad-based growth through enhancing productivity of agriculture and manufacturing, improving quality of production and stimulating competition in the economy. The successful achievements of the first Growth and Transformation Plan will be taken as an additional input and developmental activities are expected to be implemented with greater commitment and diligence across the country by addressing implementation bottlenecks identified during GTP I implementation period and through coordinated and integrated developmental mind set of development actors. It is my conviction that with citizens’ commitment and concerted efforts, the objectives of GTP II will be realized."
