Overview - External Resource Mobilization (Bilateral)

The External Resources Mobilization - Bilateral (ERM-B) Division is responsible for external economic relations, mobilizing and managing of external resources from Bilateral Development Partners (DPs) to support the implementation of the country’s development programmes aimed at achieving macro-economic stability and promoting sustainable economic growth and development. 


The mandate of the Division is to mobilize external resources in the form of grants, loans, technical assistance and other external financing instruments to complement domestic resources mobilization, without compromising new and emerging financing sources, considering the changing development assistance architecture and Ghana’s oil and middle-income status.

The sourcing of external resources is done on behalf of the Government of Ghana (GoG), through the statutory authority of the Minister responsible for Finance in accordance with the Public Financial Management Act, 2016 (Act 921) and Article 181 of the 1992 Constitution. The Division, within this framework, supports the Minister to perform his statutory mandate of mobilizing external resources and ensuring their efficient utilization.
