Government recognizes that the proper governance of the petroleum sector and the management of the resource will accelerate the transformation of our economy.
But this success requires that we moderate the expectations associated with petroleum production. Our failure to achieve will be the initial source of social instability.
Vice President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur made the remark at the launch of Western Region Coastal Foundation yesterday in Takoradi. The Foundation will facilitate multi-statkeholder efforts to address the economic, social and environmental challenges in the six coastal districts in the western region.
