The Ministry of Finance has assured that the government will continue to work with a fierce sense of urgency to stabilise the economy and place it back on a firm trajectory of growth.
The assurance comes after a government delegation successfully concluded a meeting with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to continuously negotiate for IMF support for Ghana’s Post-Covid Programme for Economic Growth.
“A pathway towards fiscal sustainability has also been extensively discussed, and the Government of Ghana and the IMF remain fully committed to the goal of reaching a Staff-Level Agreement on a programme within the shortest possible time,” the statement noted.
It said that with this objective in mind, negotiations would continue, with the IMF Mission Team, expected to be in Accra in the next few weeks.
“The Government of Ghana wishes to thank the IMF, the World Bank, our bilateral partners, and external investors, for their continued support,” the Finance Ministry said in a statement released last Friday.
