It has been a long-standing practice of ECOWAS Parliament to organise some of its committee sittings outside its headquarters and within the sub-region as a way of encouraging interaction between the Community Parliament and the people it represents.
It also provides a good platform for Members of Parliament to bring key integration issues to the attention of community citizens.
Moreover, ECOWAS Parliament selected Ghana to host the delocalised meeting of the said Joint Committee as a result of the Country’s rich experience on the subject-matter; public private partnerships. Participants of the meeting will include thirty members of the Joint
Committee, five Ghanaian Members of the ECOWAS Parliament that are not Members of the Joint Committee, Staff Members of Parliament’s Secretariat as well as other Resource persons/Experts on Public -Private Partnerships.
