Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta will today, Thursday, November 15, 2018 present the 2019 budget in Parliament.
This Budget will mark the beginning of Ghana’s exit from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme, under which Ghana sought almost 918 million dollars over three years with conditions.
With Ghanaians complaining about economic hardship, the budget, according to the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, is designed to bring relief, hope and improvement in the standard of living of Ghanaians.
“The Minister of Finance will demonstrate to Ghanaians what, as we exit the IMF programme, the Akufo-Addo Administration intends to do to maintain the Fiscal Discipline, which has been restored; increase liquidity in the Ghanaian economy; and sustain the heightened growth'’ he indicated at a press conference.
