The Second Growth and Transformation Plan (2015/16 - 2020/21)

The positive achievements of GTP I and lesson drawn from its implementation have been taken as input in the formulation of the Second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTPII). The national vision; existing national and setoral policies, strategies and programs; performance under GTPI; commitment to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and regional and international economic collaboration initiatives were the basis for the formulation of the Second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTPII) through high level political leadership, public participation & ownership.

The major objective of GTP II is to serve as a spring board towards realizing the national vision of becoming a low middle-income country by 2025, through sustaining the rapid, broad based and inclusive economic growth, which accelerates economic transformation and the journey towards the country’s Renascence. Thus, GTP II is primarily considered to be an important milestone towards realizing the national vision.
