Annual Reports & Accounts

Although the VRA's Annual Reports and Accounts are normally not circulated to the General Public, copies are available for reference in the VRA Library at the Head Office in Accra and in most offices of the Authority across Ghana.

The Annual Remarks made by the Chairman of the VRA Board is perhaps the best snapshot of each year's highlights of the VRA's life as a corporate entity and a Public Utility and as a "benchmark" national public institution I have therefore presented these remarks via these pages:
