He said the fair has demonstrated fairness in resource allocation to all districts of the country, and their equitable utilization through projects that assemblies had executed within the short period of the Government.
Mr. Aidoo said the opening up of state agencies to public enquiry and scrutiny was aimed at ensuring accountability and
transparency in the management of resources.

Mr. Aidoo said the fair showcased the achievements of the Government in the implementation of well-designed and though through policies.
