AbstractIn managing their respective countries' economies, African Finance Ministers encounter a number of challenges. Principal among these is the challenge of adopting appropriate budget processes and mechanisms that do permit information sharing and inclusiveness. To succeed in implementing reforms, there is the absolute imperative to ensure public buy-in of government economic policies. Against a backdrop of acute resource inadequacies, effective tradeoffs and negotiations between a Finance Minister, his/her colleagues in government and the public on spending priorities in keeping with government vision is essential for economic governance.
