Medium-term National Development Policy Framework: Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda (GSGDA), 2010-2013

July 1, 2012

In preparing this Medium-Term Development Policy Framework, Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda (GSGDA, 2010-2013), Government responds to the constitutional injunction, which requires that policies leading to the establishment of a just and free society are pursued by the state. Government's Better Ghana Agenda also emphasises the following: expanding access to potable water and sanitation, health, housing and education; reducing geographical disparities in the distribution of national resources; ensuring environmental sustainability in the use of natural resources through science, technology and innovation; pursuing an employment-led economic growth strategy that will appropriately link agriculture to industry, particularly manufacturing; and improving transparency and accountability in the use of public funds and other national resources.

A Theory of Workers' Remittances with an Application to Morocco

October 1, 2004

This paper provides a model on how altruism, "attachment" to the home country, and portfolio diversification may act as potential motives behind workers' remittances. It shows that the level of workers' remittances depends on how great are their degrees of altruism and "attachment" to their home country, and should also depend on interest rate differentials between the home country and the country of residence if portfolio diversification motives are significant in the decision to remit. The model is applied to Morocco using co-integration techniques. The paper then discusses the stability of remittances in Morocco and the policyimplications in light of the empirical findings.
