The Board Chairperson of SIGA, Mr. Terrence Darko will lead this retreat, with the Minister for Public Enterprises, and some Staff of the Ministry of Finance joining the retreat.
Ambassador Edward Boateng, Director-General of SIGA, is expected to lay before the meeting, some measures the Authority has outlined in the past few months to ensure efficiency and compliance. As the Authority mandated by law to ensure good corporate governance and the efficiency of Specified Entities, SIGA will continue to engage all stakeholders relevant to the achievement of its mandate.
