Open Budget Survey

Ghana was placed second next to South Africa in an open budget survey for Sub-Saharan Africa, conducted by the World Bank group. 

The third was Uganda, which came within close striking distance of 61 points with a score of 53 percent, with both following South Africa which emerged first in the region with a score of 85 percent.

The Open Budget Survey is an assessment of fiscal transparency, public participation, and formal oversight in the budget process across a range of countries, conducted every two years.

The World Bank made this known in its World Development Report and said Ghana was doing better in the Open Budget Survey than almost all the countries in the region.
