The Financial Stability Advisory Council (FSC) has held its maiden meeting months after President Akufo Addo formally inaugurated it.
The Council was formally inaugurated on 12th February 2019.
The Council signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to set out the operational details relating to its work.
