The Chairman of the Committee, Professor Kwame Adom-Frimpong, noted that “PIAC has
gradually but steadily become a relevant voice in the upstream Petroleum sector in Ghana.”
This steady growth has occurred in spite of limited resources made available for it to undertake
its activities, and a limited understanding of its mandate, especially by the general public.

He however expressed his pride in the appreciation of the value of the work done by his outfit,
with interested parties looking forward eagerly to the publication of its reports.
Professor Adom-Frimpong, explained that the redesign of the website and the development of
a data dashboard are not only to make relevant data more available to citizens, but to make it
easier for citizens to give feedback to the Committee.

Deputy Minister of Finance, Dr John Kumah, assured Members of the Committee that
government does not hold any negative views about their work, since their objective is to
ensure that the nation does better with the oil resources.
He said, “we are always happy to receive those contributions from PIAC, and I want to
encourage you to do more.”
