Government says it is putting together a post Covid-19 economic programme which will form the basis for negotiations with the International Monetary Fund. 

This was captured in a press statement released by the Finance Ministry on 26th September, 2022.

According to the ministry, the programme seeks to establish a macro-fiscal path that ensures debt sustainability and macroeconomic stability underpinned by key structural reforms and social protection.

The statement maintained that the Ministry of Finance, and the Bank of Ghana have commenced discussions with the IMF for an IMF-supported programme.
